Rick Mather has had an excellent press following his selection as masterplanner for the South Bank, though the London Evening Standard failed to recall that in a Standard competition he was adjudged one of the capital's best- dressed men. Meanwhile the Guardian produced a hilariously inaccurate account, not written by the always-accurate Jonathan Glancey, I am pleased to say. Instead, the arts correspondent, under the headline 'LA architect takes on concrete wasteland', declared that Rick was a 'funky Los Angeles architect'. This comes as a surprise since he hails from Oregon. The story also claimed the Great Man has experience of bunkers 'having transformed the Times hq in Fortress Wapping'. This is all rubbish; he designed a speculative office building next to Fortress Wapping which the Times has now bought. One assumes that the quote attributed to the architect was at least accurate: 'The main thing is to do something that will get built.' Hear hear.
