Quite apart from his elevation to the peerage, Lord Foster (of Barcelona, Berlin, Bush House?) is the only architect to feature in the line-up of candidates for Lifetime Achievement in GQ's Man of the Year Award. There are others with architectural connections, however: client-from- hell Liz Hurley ('Services to Mankind'), Harry Handelsman of the Manhattan Loft Company under 'Entrepreneurs', and Damon Albarn featuring twice in the 'Most Stylish' and 'Most Alluring Men' sections, something which former companion and erstwhile architecture student Justine Frischmann might be able to tell us about. Foster office wags, by the way, are suggesting Norman's title should be Lord Foster of Riverside, celebrating his Battersea penthouse, which now has a main living space stretching to a modest 60 metres!
