Piano in tune for second top spot


Renzo Piano has made it to number one two years in a row by picking up the 'most respected architect' spot in this year's AJ100 survey.

This is the second year running that Piano has just seen off Norman Foster to come top.

Interestingly, the results suggest that if Ken Shuttleworth, who picked up 3 per cent, was still with his former employer, then Foster may have reclaimed first place, as Piano was clear by just 1 per cent.

Once again the biggest practice in the survey was BDP, for the fifth year running, while the favourite building was Corb's Ronchamp and the least favourite was Broadway Malyan's St George's Wharf in Vauxhall.
