Club tie

  • Comment

The Architecture Club is not exactly secret, but its meetings are conducted under Chatham House rules, so some memorable occasions, frequently involving Julyan Wickham, do not always find their way into print. However, Astragal would like to pay tribute to the club's honorary secretary, Peter Murray, who celebrates his 25th anniversary in the role tomorrow evening with a reception in a splendid old pile in Kensington Palace Gardens. I do hope this is populist enough for the club, which once debated the question of whether architecture should be popular. Terry Farrell thought it should, while Sir Philip Dowson argued that this meant agreeing with the theory that '100,000 lemmings can't be wrong'.
