astragal Hideously wrong

  • Comment

My old friend Mira Bar-Hillel, architectural journalism's answer to Blaster Bates, has an intriguing article in the autumn 1998 issue of the Salisbury Review, which oxymoronically styles itself 'the quarterly magazine of conservative thought'. Not content with ad hominem attacks on aj's editor, plus contributors Ken Powell and Jeremy Melvin - all are big enough, literally and metaphorically, to take it - she terms the aj 'the [architectural] establishment's house magazine'. This outrageous slur appears amid a rambling dirge about the demise of Prince Charles' architectural ambitions. It all went hideously wrong when he stopped taking Mira's advice, of course.
