Stirling Prize judge Janet Street-Porter was stranded in Los Angeles following last week's tragic events, so arrangements for her to visit separately some of the shortlisted schemes are being made by the RIBA's Tony Chapman, the awards organiser. The rest of the judges visited the Eden and Magna projects last week. Both these extraordinary projects have seen visitor numbers vastly in excess of the original predictions, and in both cases further complementary development is envisaged. The British public has clearly taken to the idea of architecture as phenomenon (also include Tate Modern in this category). It is not entirely clear what the balance is between interest in the structures and interest in contents; the main thing may be the idea of the visit itself.
