In British architecture, Richard Rogers is the establishment. Inside Out, the grand exhibition at the Royal Academy in London that celebrates his 80th birthday makes this clear. He sits as a Labour peer in the House of Lords, and is officially known as Baron Rogers of Riverside – an apt title, given his pivotal role in opening up the river Thames to property development. He has sat on multiple quangos, most famously the Urban Task Force, and was a close ally both of Ken Livingstone and John Prescott before being sidelined by the coalition. Rogers had a major part in composing two government reports – Towards an Urban Renaissance and its sequel, Towards a Strong Urban Renaissance. Look at recent London schemes by Rogers Stirk Harbour, the firm he founded, and now takes a backseat role in, and you find the Leadenhall building, a skyscraper in the City; Riverlight, a development of luxury flats in Nine Elms; NEO Bankside, another development of luxury … [Read more...] about Richard Rogers at 80: principles and power

We've sent a demand ... well, we've sent a letter to his office to let it know it's been kidnapped. We've got full photos of the whole act going on." The caller says he'll leave a number, and then doesn't, but promises he will ring back. A couple of days later the Guardian receives photographic evidence of the kidnap, alongside a "manifesto" from the kidnappers. The emailed pictures show a sculpture - an 8ft bronze resin model of a pensive man with hand on chin, rather like Rodin's Thinker but with a traffic cone on his head - in situ off Shaftesbury Avenue in London's West End. The Drinker marked a radical departure for Britain's most famous faceless graffiti artist - it was his … [Read more...] about But is it kidnap?

Iris Dudek, a University of Greenwich student living in London, applied for a marketing internship at the confectionery company with a clever application that read like the back of a bag of gummy sweets. Jamie, 31, shared the application with his 875k Instagram followers, writing that he'd been stunned by the 'extremely impressive, creative and smart CV'. The student included clever puns on her application, writing she had '100% positive energy', as well as joking she contained 'maybe a little fat' and was only salty 'when necessary'.
