Bad housekeeping

The AJ's offices feature in a new book, 20th Century Buildings in Islington, written by Islington council's conservation officer Alec Forshaw and published by The Islington Society. But as occupants we get a ticking off: 'Nos 133-59 Rosebery Avenue by Troughton McAslan (1989) was daring for its time, High-Tech offices with green tinted glass, ' Forshaw writes. 'It prepared the way, perhaps, for Sadler's Wells, although unlike the theatre it suffers from the clutter of office furniture against the fullheight windows.' Evidently we are saving our rigour for the pages of the magazine.
