With Rowan Moore moving to the London Evening Standard from the Daily Telegraph, displacing Mira Bar-Hillel's often vitriolic coverage of architecture, who will fill the empty chair at Canary Wharf? One front runner must be Giles Worsley, lately of the late Perspectives on Architecture, abandoned by the Prince's Institute amid much bloodletting, and an occasional contributor to The Times. Astragal's ears will be pinned back when the 'final party to celebrate' the magazine takes place next week - not at St James's Palace, where it was launched by its patron, Prince Charles, less than four years ago, but at the Art Workers' Guild (former prop: Roderick Gradidge of That Pony Tail). The Telegraph vacancy comes at a time when national coverage of architecture has never been so sporadic, or at least not since the early 1980s. While Jonathan Glancey keeps his end up on the Grauniad, the Independent has gone the design and lifestyle route with Nonie Niesewand, Colin Amery's coverage in the FT and Marcus Binney's in The Times are occasional, the Observer has given up completely and Hugh Pearman, in the Sunday Times, seems to be fighting for space in the Culture section - mostly given over to television or 'chewing gum for the eyes', as Frank Lloyd Wright put it so eloquently. This only makes the selection of Moore's successor the more crucial.
