News has reached Astragal of an unlikely group of British architects currently at work in The Netherlands on a site adjacent to Amsterdam station called Oosterdokseiland.

According to one of Astragal's many spies in the low countries, a trio made up of MacCreanor Lavington, Future Systems and Bennetts Associates is busy grafting away on site on schemes that form part of an Erick Van Egeraat masterplan.

While the fact that MacCreanor Lavington is involved makes a lot of sense - the practice has a great rep with the Dutch - one cannot help but wonder what the thinking was behind the other two appointments. All three, of course, are admirable architects, but they do seem to have nothing whatsoever in common. Or are we missing something here? Answers on a postcard please.
