Lynne is married and lives in South London. She is an
architect. Getting information out of Lynne about herself is
like getting money from a Scotsman. Anyway, Lynne was
persuaded to reveal the following:
After leaving Apsley I spent 2 years
at the Bartlett (Architecture School) University College London
and dropped out in 1969.
I worked in the travel trade (Wings Holidays) for a few years. I
set up home (bed-sit) with ex-fellow architecture student and,
briefly, shared a flat with Averil and a couple of other women. In
1972 I moved to Devon with aforementioned student, first Brixham,
then (lovely) Totnes and got job in an Architects' office there,
where I met, worked with, set up home with Architect
colleague...and we've been together ever since, marrying in 1982.
In 1975 travelled for 3 months - with
VW Beetle and tent - through Europe down to southern Turkey.
Wonderful. Autumn 1975 to 1981 studied Architecture at
Kingston Polytechnic. Final professional qualification 1982.
Worked in 3 different Architects practices 1981 to 1992, two of
them well-known (then). Worked 1992 to 2001 on all sorts of stuff
particularly trade exhibitions design, for broadcast electronics
company - strange story, too complicated to explain here.
Exhibitions took me to Las Vegas several times, so there were
compensations. Since autumn 2001 freelance, 'though still doing
exhibition liaison work and managing various bits of building and
reorganisation for same company. Available for architectural
Other things: No children, not through choice. Like the
usual things...cooking, eating, art, architecture, walking,
gardening, the odd concert (rock and otherwise), holidays (love
the USA - Texas and the dessert states 'though have only been a
few times, Yorkshire Dales every year, Scotland).
