Glasgow frolics

Fabulous times were had by all at the launch of the Glasgow City of Architecture year. The most spectacular moment came not at any of the official events, however, but in the early hours following the launch party, when the bar of the Brunswick Hotel turned into a disco crush, and festival director Deyan Sudjic, with Piers Gough, felt obliged to strut their stuff on the tables of the bar. Unmissable! When Piers dived from the table it was Jonathan Glancey who acted as a Charles Atlas to save our favourite cbe from leaving his mark on the bar floor. As for Sudjic, the weekend was a chance for him to dispel his image as a quiet, shy, dour person. He began his campaign at a reception in the City Chambers. ds suddenly donned a party hat in the shape of the Foster Armadillo scheme to dispel the erroneous notion that he is a killjoy, and delivered a witty tribute to the city and the people who are making the year happen. He was outdone in his praise only by David Page of Page and Park, who reminded us that Glasgow was not simply the most important city in Scotland, the uk or Europe, but in fact in the whole universe. The audience did not disagree. Deyan also hosted a splendid dinner in the library of Mackintosh's School of Art and is clearly destined for a future career as party animal.
