Astragal's survey of who's up and who's down must start at the top, with Norman Foster. In some ways a magnificent 12 months, and there should be an air of quiet triumph down Battersea way, especially given the practice's new management structure, designed to give confidence about succession and the future.

Alas, there is the odd cloud on the horizon. For one thing, the practice has not been retained by the British Museum to do follow-up work after the Great Court project.

More significant has been the needless fiasco over the departure of Ken Shuttleworth and the doctored staff photograph, in which Our Ken was cut-and-pasted to an inferior position in the latest volume of the practice history. This would be funny if it wasn't so sad.
