A few comments
The AA Files cover was designed by Antonio Lagarto (Nigel’s then partner)
You are right about Alvin’s view of council David
I don’t think its fair to say he ‘hated’ Leon Krier – I don’t think he hated anyone within the AA – he reserved his venom for Council.
Martin Pawley also wrote about Garbage Housing
Jim Monahan was also super involved with Covent Garden – for a much longer time than Brian
...Work in progress always interesting.. And thanks Nicholas , I tend to
shoot from the hip and am often in trouble for this .but I think your
comments add a lot .. .. I owe a lot to your father , he told me I was
unemployable but employed me anyway ! The Pawley book I was trying to
remember was 'Terminal Architecture ' .. Great title ! ....
....Antonio Lagarto was charged with designing the first issue, through vicinity or otherwise, my article on behaviour in nightclubs was the first story in Issue 1: New Clubs at Large. This drawing was part of a pertinent project, The Night lives of the Artists, which was set theoretically speaking in the Piazzale degli Uffizi. I’d have to look back at what illustrated my story but it could very well have included this one and it might have made a better cover illustration than what actually got printed.
Could have, would have. I’m proud to have the first story ever in Files.
