Retiring, not shy


Last week's most important bash was thrown at the Royal Academy (RA) to mark Peter Davey's retirement as editor of the Architectural Review.

The event was wildly successful, with everyone, including the great man himself, seeming to enjoy themselves. The evening's highlights included a speech from the new president of the academy, Nicholas Grimshaw. Bizarrely, it emerged that a scheme - the Nottingham factory units - by Grimshaw's young practice was featured on the front of Peter's first edition of the AR in 1981.
