Danny Libeskind is busy drumming up support (and funding) for his major uk projects, the Imperial War Museum North and the V&A Spiral. The war museum was the subject of a private presentation and dinner at All Souls, Oxford, last week, where guests included architectural and war correspondents as well as dons. All Souls was founded, it might be argued, as a result of the battle of Agincourt. Henry Chichele, who advised Henry V and subsequently became Archbishop of Canterbury (no rubbish about pacifism in those days) later funded the creation of the college. The evening was introduced, appropriately enough, by the Chichele Professor of the History of War, Robert O'Neill. Meanwhile the V&A is hosting some discreet events in London to promote the Spiral; no doubt both projects will get an airing when Danny gives the annual Academy Forum architecture lecture at the ra on 17 June.
