Out with the old. . .
Alittle birdy tells me that plans to return a replica of Powell and Moya's Skylon to a suitable home on London's South Bank are still progressing. If they do get the go-ahead, the RIBA's presidentelect Jack Pringle, the guardian of the firm's archive, will be a very happy man. One reason for this is that his firm, Pringle Brandon, was born from the remnants of Powell and Moya itself. Pringle is also hoping that sometime in the next few years he might right a wrong for his forebears - and produce a monograph of their work.
Amazingly, no one has published one before now.
