Tower power

  • Comment

A quick look at the Sunday Times' Rich List, published this week, suggests that architects are not having enough 'eureka!'moments to propel them into the the echelons of the seriously wealthy. Architects are notable by their absence, and it is left to Sir Terence Conran (£68 million) and James Dyson (£360 million) to fly the flag for British design. Developers do rather better, with Urban Splash's Tom Bloxham (£35 million) rubbing shoulders with old-timers such as Elliott Bernerd (£120 million), Sir Anthony Bamford and family (£675 million), Sir Stuart Lipton (£47 million) Sir John and Peter Beckwith (£230 million) and John Ritblat and family (£63 million). Irvine Sellar (£78 million), Harry Hyams (£315 million) and Gerald Ronson (£172 million) offer living proof that it pays to be in towers.
