Foster and Bowles: the shape of things to come?

  • Comment

I would like to express my sincere congratulations to Norman Foster and Meredith Bowles on winning the Stirling Prize and the Manser Medal respectively. They each have something in common: both have a connection to a subject that shouldn't be mentioned in England. Foster's building connection via its shape is obvious - however, the connection of The Black House (pictured) in the Fens with the same theme is a little less obvious. With the benefit of local knowledge, however, all becomes clear. The address of The Black House is Kingdon(g) Avenue, Prickwillow.

I would like to speculate what the nickname of 30 St Mary Axe would be if its address was swapped with The Black House? Jonathan Ellis-Miller, ex-resident of Kingdon(g) Avenue
