Astragal hopped in a cab the other day and extracted some titbits of architectural gossip from the driver. According to our clued-up cabbie, ‘that Richard Rogers dresses like a bloody gardener. What’s with those bloody stripy cords? In fact, when I went to pick him up, I thought he was the bloody gardener!’ Our font of Knowledge (geddit?) also, nudge nudge wink wink, reckons that when Spencer de Grey completed work at the British Museum he had a stone laid inscribed with something along the lines of ‘Spencer de Grey, Foster + Partners’. When Lord Norm got wind of this, the stone was pulled up and Simon’s name scrubbed off. Oo-er boys!
