MORE MEMORIES OF GILES WORSLEY..
I share with many others the sorrow at Giles Worsley's premature death. He brought honesty, good humour, scholarship and independence of mind to the world of architectural criticism.
He and I became editors of Perspectives and Blueprint at the same time, two magazines with radically different attitudes but both published by Peter Murray's Wordsearch.
I remember him from that time for his skill in turning Prince Charles's architectural agenda into something richer and more open than perhaps HRH ever had in mind. I will miss, among other things, the inquiring tilt of the head with which he would greet a piece of news, or a possibly suspect idea.
