Mutual admiration

Astragal received a call from a charming young Italian lady who turned out to be one of Renzo Piano’s lackeys. She explained that the Genoese Shardmaster was overjoyed at being named ‘Most Admired Architect’ in the recent AJ100 listings and wanted to get hold of a copy of the article. ‘Fine,’ Astragal replied, ‘what does he want to use it for?’ ‘To be honest,’ came the response, ‘I think he just wants to show Richard Rogers.’
