RIBA diet

  • Comment

What is it about the RIBA presidency and weight loss? Astragal hears that previous incumbent Marco Goldschmied lost a staggering six stone during his time in office and now the new man, ex AJ columnist Paul Hyett, has admitted to losing two stone already. Clearly the time is right for the institute to grasp this marketing opportunity and make some easy money by fronting a new, 'tried and tested' diet regime.

Astragal can see it now: 'You've heard of the F Plan, now try the RIBA plan! Even the lions in our new logo have lost weight!' It could have been worse for the logo, however. Hyett suggested that one of the new lions should be black, one white, and on a recent visit to Australia, Hyett put it to the Australian RIBA equivalent that they should use no lions at all. They should use kangaroos. G'day!
