There will be no holiday this year for Gough who instead is working on a Channel 4 documentary on the history of architecture, for which he was sent to Coventry this week. Other architects are taking a more Mediterranean approach to vacations. Lord Foster is spending the month in his house in the south of France ('but he is working' said his office). Nigel Coates has been in France and Italy and Steve Marshall of Munkenbeck and Marshall in Cyprus. Even the AJ's esteemed editor Paul Finch has forsaken his usual Scratby for Skiathos. More exotic was Chris Wilkinson, who spent his time driving through Death Valley. The fab four at Allford Hall Monaghan Morris almost manage to impress - Monaghan is going to Mexico, Hall to Hong Kong, Morris to New York ... and Allford to Sheffield. But Astragal was distressed to hear about the architect whose office was not allowed to divulge his whereabouts 'because he likes to spend the month out of glare of publicity'. Have the paparazzi targetted architects now?
