What a week for parties. The ow of booze really started on Tuesday with the launch of Lifschutz Davidson Sandilands' new office all the way over in Chiswick, west London. It was quite a bash.
The thing that left Astragal somewhat surprised was just how many of architecture's big names made it over to this western frontier. Paul Monaghan, Amin Taha, Sarah Wigglesworth, Crispin Kelly, a group of planners from Southwark, a coterie of senior AA bods and the AJ's old friend, Ken Powell, were among the many names who had ventured outside their usual central and north London beat to attend Bob Marley's former recording studio. The District Line back to civilisation resembled a veritable architectural zoo.
