Last week was a great one for birthdays. Buro Happold celebrated its 25th in style at the British Museum; spotted among the 500 guests was Virginia Bottomley and, according to a Buro Happold insider, there were ' a few cabinet ministers'. Fortunately the dress code was informal, as AR editor Peter Davey, keen to avoid the attentions of the May Day rioters, was wearing anti-capitalist faded blue denims. Among the happiest revellers were the three partners from Pringle Richards Sharratt, as the event coincided with the practice's fifth anniversary.
And RHWL was celebrating its 40th last week, with a lunch for a number of the original staff.
