letters Stolen ideas from bathrooms to stadia

  • Comment

In aj 27.1.00, Michael Roberts exposed the plagiarism of a bathroom designed by John Pawson. On pages 43 and 44 of the same issue, there are photographs showing 'the world's largest table football table', part of the Work and Learning Zone at the Dome.

This exhibit is an exact facsimile, and we presume unauthorised, of 'Stadium' by the artist Maurizio Cattelan, which was made in 1991 for the Collezione Cellula, and formed the centre piece of our setting for 'abracadabra' at the Tate last summer.

Virtually bald High Tech pianist 'RR' is odd chap

With reference to the Rogers- Rogers-Rodgers Odd One Out from 27.1.00), I fear E T Waters (aj 3.2.00) got it wrong. Richard Rogers was the true 'odd one out', because:

1. He's the only bi-lingual one.

2. He's the only High Tech

architect.

3. He's the only one who has

virtual baldness.

4. He's the only one not wear

ing eye-liner.

5. He's the only one with initials

like a famous car.

6. He's the only one who plays

Piano.

7. He's the only one who inha-

bits a river bank.

8. He's the only one who never

wears white shirts.

As for today's quiz, as Sam Goldwyn said, 'Include me out!'
