you're never going to believe this but....

...the 'architecture discussion group meeting once a month at a selected building...' is actually going to meet up.

Specifically...we're proposing a trip on the Thames Cable Car from Royal Victoria/Emirates Victoria Dock next friday (5th October).

The meet-up will be 6.45pm outside Jim Sterling's po-mo masterpiece/minor work No.1 Poultry EC2R and, because it's just possible it might be raining, we'll congregate beneath the Queen Victoria Street exit to the building.  Then it's a ride on the DLR from Bank to Royal Victoria, and thence to the cable car.

Afterwards the idea is to head for the Dean Swift pub in Bermondsey.

Hope to see you there!
