Drunken graphics with a sense of humour

  • Comment

Will Alsop's proposals for transposing an Italian walled hill town to Barnsley (AJ 18.4.02) might be merely the usual mixture of logophilia and drunken graphics, were it not for three facts that seem to have escaped the eagle eye of your news editor:

1) Barnsley doesn't have a quarter-mile wide river as shown on the plan.

2) It isn't on a hill.

3) Alsop's scheme has already been described in the pages of the Guardian on 1 April.

It seems that Mr Alsop has more sense of humour than I credited him with.
