New heights

Former RIBA president Frank Duffy, founding partner of DEGW and guru to the world of office work, was in excellent spirits last weekend at a party to celebrate his move to New York.

(He will still be with DEGW, but operating in a more strategic way, and doubtless doing some teaching as well. ) Many old friends turned out to wish him luck, including his former teacher at the AA, Roy Landau, Alex Reid, Richard MacCormac, Richard Burton, Andrew Rabaneck, Stephen Greenberg and the rest of his gang of four - Eley, Giffone and Worthington. Conversations included a speculation about the value of mapping, who taught whom in schools of architecture, and the influence it had on their subsequent work. Maybe Frank and Roy could prompt some work in this area, starting with AA connections.
