Guerrilla approach

  • Comment

What a wonderful social life is that of the architectural diarist.

Last week Astragal attended, among other things, the packed reception for the AJ Small Project Awards at the RIBA; the Rogues and Vagabonds dinner of Bartlett School alumni; the Civic Trust Awards event at Daniel Libeskind's Imperial War Museum North in Salford (he spoke); and this week the Eric Lyons Memorial Trust student design awards at the Royal Academy. I just managed to catch lunch with Charlie Luxton, architect and proto-television star, who is making a programme on 'guerrilla architecture', that is to say architecture which subverts (legally, of course) the planning and building regulation system - for example, to provide cheap new homes. Research is in progress; watch out for the programme on BBC3 later this year.
