One of Britain’s top architects visited St Albans to conduct a talk on modern design in a historic city.

Sir Terry Farrell is responsible for many iconic designs including the Greenwich Peninsula, Paddington Basin, Newcastle’s Quayside, Hull’s The Deep, Newcastle’s Centre for Life, and some East Asian buildings including Incheon Airport in Seoul and both Beijing and Guangzhou stations.

This year he was awarded the Royal Town Planning Institute’s Gold Medal as one of the world’s most influential architects, planners and urban designers.

St Albans Civic Society hosted his free talk, which took place at St Albans School library on November 21, at 7pm.

Entrance was free.

I should probably have taken the hint! Walking out into the garden recently an unprecedented flock of thirty or more crows raucously greeted me from the treetops at the bottom of my garden. Cawing and croaking these big, black birds clung clumsily to the top most branches and twigs, jostling and flapping to stay balanced in a constant flurry of feathers. There is always something ominous about crows – they are after all carrion crows, the vultures of the bird world – always watching for scraps and weakness that might mean their next meal.
