Enjoying the opening of the Jerwood Gallery at London's Natural History Museum, I bump into former Tory Heritage Secretary, Peter Brooke. 'I must be the only Secretary of State to have met Frank Lloyd Wright,' he says, recalling a Saturday night film-show at Taliesin when he was just 24. Brooke gives a thumbs-up to Bankside Tate, but is much more guarded about the Dome. As for cabe: 'I have the greatest respect for Stuart Lipton but what is it going to do?'. Rather a lot, judging by chairman Lipton's swift success in persuading the Lord Chancellor's department to modify its pfi procedures to get better design and prevent architects wasting time and money. More news soon.
