When the judges returned from visiting one of the shortlisted projects for the AJ First Building Award (winner to be announced at the Stirling dinner), Alex de Rijke was seen to dash off in a tremendous hurry. What was so pressing? A crucial client meeting?
A pitch for a job? No, he had to have a little panstick applied and then lined up with the other dRMM directors, Philip Marsh and Sadie Morgan, outside their awardwinning building in Centaur Street, Waterloo, to be photographed for Vogue. The trio will appear in the magazine in December, in one of those 'important this year' compilations, in which they will be the only architects.
