Winning ways

  • Comment

It is not often that architecture or architects make the tabloid press. So it was with delight that I noticed that the News of the World had a small featurette last weekend following the correction of the wobble on THAT bridge.

None other than Michael Winner, in his weekly page for the paper, ran an item on the bridge and the other big wobbly of the week, that thrown by Iron Mike Tyson. A picture, captioned 'Foster-pal: me and Norm', showed Winner with his arm round a nervous looking Lord F. In a world exclusive (not), Winner said the wobble had been corrected.Moreover, 'His Lordship also got into trouble when marble (? ) for his new hall (? ) at the British Museum didn't match what was already there. Someone flogged 'em a cheaper version! That looks splendid too! These hiccups will go into obscurity as the bridge and the hall live on!' As an architecture critic Winner can order a good lunch.
