Jonathan Glancey can always be relied on for vivid accounts of his adventures far from the Guardian's comfortable Farringdon offices. Take his trip to Norman Foster's Millau Viaduct in southwest France. 'The day I came this way, walking through rocky paths high above the gorge, the tips of the new bridge's concrete piers were only just visible above the clouds, ' writes Glancey. By noon, though, the clouds had gone 'and the bridge revealed itself as the great work of art it was meant to be'. Strange that the sudden clarity left Glancey thinking that the viaduct was east of Millau, not west, as it is in fact. But then a major website on the project (www.enerpac. com) makes the same mistake. Spooky.
