Goode taste

  • Comment

You will be delighted to hear that the wallpaper in the Lord Chancellor's apartment is certainly all it is cracked up to be. About 80 architects and their spouses were welcomed to the parliamentary residence last week by the resurgent Architects Benevolent Society and its new development manager, Norman Webster, for an evening of wine, canapes and a couple of presentations.The first - by Graham Goode, the man behind the apartment's controversial restoration - was entertaining and illuminating.

However, the second, by Ken Livingstone's architecture boss Richard Brown, served up nothing new on the London Plan and only illustrated how well briefed on public relations the mayor's minions seem to have become. But, all in all, it was a fine evening, in extraordinary surroundings and all for an excellent cause.
