Wet behind the ears

While Astragal's employer, The Architects' Journal, is still getting used to its Camden residence, others are preparing to move away.

Architect Sidell Gibson is being forced to find new premises as its landlord wants to redevelop its canalside location as housing. Apparently it would like to stay in the neighbourhood - despite the fact that partner Richard Morton had an encounter with some of the area's less generous spirits. Innocently walking to King's Cross station along the canal one evening, when it was still light, he was pushed in by three young men. Having had to commute home dripping wet, and ruined both his shoes and his mobile phone, Morton has learnt his lesson. 'I don't walk along the canal any more,' he said.
