If engineers had to adjust their gait while entering the building, they risked distraction from their work, according to a former construction manager. &ldquo;We spent months trying not to do that because that&rsquo;s time, money and stuff that&rsquo;s never been done before,&rdquo; the former construction manager said.</p></em><br /><br /><p>Although detail-obsessed architects can often find working with broad-strokes contractors to be challenging, there's one group of designers with perhaps even more rigorous attention to detail: the team at Apple.

Made of amber glass and steel, the office tower almost graced Mansion House Square in the City of London. Instead, James Stirling&rsquo;s recently-landmarked, Postmodernist No 1 Poultry building occupies the site. How and why this happened involves, like many stories concerning the post-war development of London, the intervention of the Prince of Wales amidst the cultural and economic tumult that marked the city in the latter half of the twentieth century. It is &ldquo;a tale of 1980s London egos, of personal and political intrigue, and power plays from the peerage, Prince and prime minister.
