The well-attended bash to launch the Architecture Foundation's New Architects book appeared to be two people missing. One is ex-foundation director Jeremy Melvin, under whose aegis the project was launched. The other, former heritage minister Lord Inglewood, found the funding before the last election; the idea of the book was slightly expanded afterwards, hence the delayed appearance. There is no reference to either Melvin or Inglewood in the book's acknowledgements. Curious.
