Portland Place's Florence Hall presented a surreal spectacle before the end of the awards dinner, as guests took part in a competition to build the tallest structure possible using toy wooden bricks. The evening ascended into free form as guests piled chairs on tables in vain attempts to add height to the towers they were supposed to assemble out of wooden bricks left on the table, in a competition to build the most elegant structure. Two tables presented sculptures of a shapely human form holding a little brick aloft, but the judges picked as winner a design by Peter St John of Walsall Art Gallery architect Caruso St John. Others thought Tony Hunt's deserved the prize - not least Tony himself, who demolished three neighbouring towers with judicious throws of orange peel. While this was taking place, other guests struggled with a tough architectural quiz (won by historian prankster Joe Kerr with maximum points). The quiz revealed several alarming areas of ignorance, such as the name of Tadao Ando's dog (Corbusier) and the city in Europe excluding Paris where Eiffel built a tower (Lisbon). Saddest of all was the failure of many to identify Hegel as the person who popularised the notion that architecture is frozen music.
