Congratulations to my fellow hacks on Architecture Today, who celebrated their survival for the last ten years in fine style at the new James Stirling/Michael Wilford building in Carlton House Terrace last week. Mary Stirling and daughter Kate were in attendance., while culture secretary Chris Smith was guest of honour. His speech did not make reference to government policies about mixed-use buildings helping regenerate inner city areas. Perhaps this was because the price of flats in Stirling Place, as it is called, start at £2 million . . . The new building is nice, but it was a shame to see Louis de Soisson's cool sixties block demolished to make way for it. But then the LdS design meant demolishing a Nash piece. Modernists can't complain.
