Correctly present

  • Comment

This year's winner was referred to on screen, quite wrongly, as 'Lord Norman Foster', when he is, in fact, Lord Foster of Thames Bank. We need to be correct about these things.

Happily, Norman turned up for the dinner - the first time this has happened, although of course he is a previous winner with the Duxford air museum. It would have looked a little churlish not to have been present this year, given that there were two Foster buildings in the shortlist. From the enthusiasm that greeted the Business Academy Bexley, it seemed that the ambition of its social programme might have persuaded the judges to give it the big prize. But, as things turned out, the vote for Swiss Re was unanimous - the first time this has happened. For once, the favourite won.
