Waterloo calm

After last week's excitement at CABE, departing chairman (date yet to be established) Sir Stuart Lipton addressed staff and other commissioners this Monday with a positive message to continue the battle to push good design on all fronts. New chief executive Richard Simmons takes up his post on 20 September, and the Department for Culture, Media and Sport will doubtless advertise the chairmanship in the near future.

Meanwhile, CABE enjoyed the massive publicity given to one of its commissioners on the front page of the Guardian: the 'Vortex' tower design by Ken Shuttleworth, chair of CABE's design review committee.

Ken was one of the architects who took part in the AJ Smithfield charette at the weekend; Will Alsop managed to slip a 'Ken Tower' image into his painting of what might happen in the area.
