The AF book was boasting its second launch of the day, after a less cramped affair at Chapman Taylor's emerging 'N1' shopping centre in Islington. Letts Wheeler's winning design for an angel at the centre was revealed in a Blankety Blank-style sliding door ceremony. Meanwhile, third-placed practice Walker & Martin will be putting its £1,000 cheque to good use: an office outing to Barcelona is on the cards. Also at the foundation until October 28 is an exhibition called 'Make your case', where each architect has been asked to take a suitcase and put something representative inside.
Sadly, three practices had the same idea - stuffing a case with fake banknotes. Money talks.
