Star spot


The Carlton Club, Wordsearch's after-hours drinking haunt, was once again the favoured hang-out for the architectural community. I spied Terry Farrell, Deyan Sudjic, Ken Shuttleworth, Will Alsop, Tom Bloxham from Urban Splash, Peabody's Dickon Robinson, Harry Handelsman, Kathryn Findlay, Hanif and Albert from Adams Kara Taylor, David Marks, Chris Wilkinson, Michael Squire, Roger Zogolovitch, Alex Lifschutz, and numerous others. One wellknown figure was even eagerly chatting to a fine young lady from the locale - before the gentleman in question noticed 'she' had a rather prominent Adam's apple.

Wordsearch's Peter and William Murray can also be commended for their choice of DVD playing as background on a large screen on one wall - Waterloo, starring Rod Steiger. I'm sure the French barmen were most amused!
