Gordon Bennetts

Hey - aren’t you the famous Rab Bennetts?

Land Securities’ London managing director,Mike Hussey, made sure Rab Bennetts of Bennetts Associates got the full starchitect treatment at a restaurant on his New Street Square site in central London, tipping off the restaurant staff in anticipation of the architect’s arrival. Unsuspecting Bennetts sat down for a lunch when the waitress did a double-take. ‘Rab Bennetts?’ she squealed. ‘Oh my god, are you Rab Bennetts, the architect?’ Apparently, a reddened Bennetts took the celebrity attention in his stride.
