Stars and stripes
Roger Zogolovitch's Centaur housing scheme won an AIA design excellence award for architect De Rijke Marsh Morgan, presented by the UK/London chapter at the Royal Society of Arts the other evening. Other award winners were:
Wilkinson Eyre for the Covent Garden twisting bridge link; Simon Conder for his rubber house on the beach at Dungeness;
Allford Hall Monaghan Morris for the Jubilee School, Lambeth; and a highly commended to Laurie Chetwood for the Butterfly House in Surrey.
I was also pleased to see my old friend Paul Finch made an honorary member of the chapter for his help on its annual student charette. Drinks all round?
