Stirling of course produces its own stardust, with such luminaries as Zaha Hadid and, of course, winner Richard Rogers at the awards bash. There were also some big names from outside the grubby world of architecture. Those included designer Wayne Hemingway and ICA director Ekow Eshun, who both joined presenter Kevin McCloud for a very brief and, to the audience, largely inaudible, televised sofa chat after the winner had been announced. Also, there was '60s fashion genius Mary Quant and, most loudly, TV presenter and gossip-column regular Ulrika Jonsson. She jumped up and down and whooped when McCloud announced that the public vote had gone to Evelina Childrens' Hospital, where Jonsson's child had been treated.
