Icon definition

Police presence would have been useful on the London stand. Somebody had the nerve to steal the Foster Swiss Re tower model from the giant London model installed by Pipers under the genial eye of director Barry McKeogh. No-one quite knows when it happened, but it has given a new definition of an icon building: one where the model gets pinched. Perhaps they should produce a limited edition.

Speaking on the stand, former AJ editor Paul Finch remarked that he hoped the thief was 'sitting on it'.
