LIVING IN A BUBBLE
An oddly small affair at the RIBA marked the launch of an excellent book, by Tony Chapman, to celebrate the 10year anniversary of the Stirling Prize. The names were out in force; Chris Wilkinson, Ian Ritchie, Will Alsop and Marco Goldschmied were but a few.
The highlight was the result of a caption competition which featured Marco and Stella McCartney, the 1999 celebrity judge, in Future Systems' Lords media centre. The invented quotes had Marco turning to Stella to ask: 'What do you make of this scheme?', to which she replies: 'Whatever!' Outstanding work.
