Will Alsop's bloomin’ cheek

  • Comment

Astragal thought Will Alsop was trying to get in touch with his feminine side when he took a great interest in the floral centrepiece at last week’s AJ/Bovis Lend Lease Royal Academy dinner

Little did Astragal know that Alsop was actually critically analysing the arrangement to determine how best to swipe it for his wife as a birthday present.

In the end he went for a calculated smash (the surrounding glassware) and grab (the roses), wrapping them up in a co-ordinated shocking pink linen napkin. His table-mates were greatly amused and even helped arrange the posy. Alsop justified his actions as ‘sustainable re-use’. Astragal thinks he just couldn’t be bothered to stop off at a petrol station on the way home.
