[Astragal at the Stirling Prize dinner] Architects v rock stars

  • Comment

Mingling on ground trodden by Jimi Hendrix and Jim Morrison’s psychedelic spirits, guests at the Stirling Prize dinner at London’s Roundhouse were treated to a ‘whirling visual feast’ described by one veteran as ‘a fitting tribute to an illustrious music venue’

The belle of the ball, Zaha Hadid, whose flowing yellow garment was personally made by Italian fashion designer Miuccia Prada, was proof in the pudding that architects know how to party in style.

Close by, Mike Davies of Rogers Stirk Harbour + Partners (RSHP) was dressed in his trademark red suit, while former RIBA president George Ferguson wore red pantaloons.

Graham Stirk, also of RSHP, was wearing a yellow smiley face badge, but was last seen under a table searching for his keys. Clearly, partying architects can give the rock stars of yore a run for their money.
