It's not every day that one gets an insight into the musical tastes of architecture's leading lights but Astragal got a rare treat last week. While out shopping for trainers (all those canapés take their toll you know) and being subjected to Capital FM over the shop's PA, Astragal's ears pricked up when the DJ broke in to announce 'a very special request from the Richard Rogers Partnership'.
What poptastic treat would this be? Wonderwall? Build Me Up Buttercup? The airwaves then bristled with the driving bassline of Stevie Wonder's funk classic Superstition. Seven years of bad luck Richard? Let's hope not, for your sake.
