In the orgy of alcohol, testosterone and mobile phones that is MIPIM, the annual property festival at Cannes, Pringle Brandon received the 'alpha for effort' accolade from the London architectural contingent, fielding no fewer than nine staff. GHM Rock Townsend's Alistair Hay had to miss the party hosted by Hoyts, the giant Australian cinema operator. Instead Hay is scouring Europe for no fewer than 500 cinema sites over the next few years, 120 or more to be located in the UK and of which at least a handful will be to his practice's designs. Grandest visitor was Michael Manser, who forswore the delights of staying in Cannes itself, but found agreeable accommodation at Cap Ferrat.
