Onward and upward

Christine Hawley is to succeed fox-hunting environmental engineer Pat O'Sullivan as head of the Bartlett, arguably the uk's most prestigious school of architecture. She has come a long way since Astragal first remembers her, as an ingenue in the Louis de Soissons Partnership some quarter of a century ago. What next? Bartlett professors are in constant danger of receiving gongs - think Llewelyn-Davies, Patrick Abercrombie and Peter Hall. Are we about to see the first dame of architectural education? Hawley is used to firsts, having been the first woman head of school, at East London. Meanwhile Peter Cook, a long-time Hawley associate, has been overheard muttering something about having to watch his step, since La Hawley is now his boss!
