17TH, 18TH, 19TH JUNE: THREE MATES IN BATH

Here are three close friends from the architecture course of the 1970s at Kingston Polytechnic, who formed the core of 'Team Olympico', that travelled all round Europe in their vacations looking at architecture:

Now, nearly 40 years later, they meet in Bath to support Simon at the opening of his art show at the Adam Gallery.  Although they became architects, they are now practising artists, and they are all firmly agreed about one thing in particular:  that the Kingston course was the best possible education in architecture - because it is in an art school, where architectural education should always be.

... and, as we all know, an architectural education is for enjoying; not for enduring - and these boys knew how to enjoy themselves.
