Astragal (AJ 02.11.00) seems to have missed the point about JVC's peculiar view of architects.
The text to the advertisement reads: 'Stu, 31-year-old architect. Lives in Clerkenwell. . .He owns a Ducati 996 and Audi TT, but can't even drive.'
Aside from the fact that this portrays architects as vacuous fools, who pays this man enough to afford the all these things? In my experience, the text should have read: 'All his friends are lawyers and drive BMWs.He lives in a rented flat in Stockwell, south London and owns a ropey mountain bike.'
