Lord Foster had the pleasure of Astragal’s company recently, when the superstar architect launched something-or-other for CABE at the British Museum. He was sporting a choice salmon-pink corduroy suit (why does he always wear it?) and looking at least 20 years younger than his actual 178 years. But despite his science-defyingly youthful looks, the big man is not exactly ‘down with the kids’. When asked who he thought the best young architect in Britain was, the old codger could only reply he wasn’t up to date with the hip scene – albeit not in so many words. But despite being eligible for a free bus pass, he does have quite a turn of pace left in him. For no sooner had he given his response, he was bounding up the stairs and away from the baying hacks. What a guy; what a hero; what an inspiration.
