Look what you've started:

Bi-score rule or Boris E. Cruel

Her med aversion or Red hem aversion or Merde H. Aversion or He dream version

My hot name

And a cheeky one- A hen rump hag

So far Ctesiphon is leading the points race by a mile with "A sham looker" for Rem K.

But who is Boris E. Cruel?

:D

Mr B.E. Cruel (also 'bi-score rule') is a certain M. Jeanneret.

For Rem I also like 'OO! Lame shark', and to a lesser extent 'has lame rook' (forthe chess fraternity) and 'A krool shame'. Maybe Messrs Cruel and Krool could go into business?

Another for Mies is 'Hi sermon evader'.

Did you get 'my hot name'? His name is hot because he recently won a big award (and apparently is putting a Welcome mat out for evil).

How about 'Pillow Las'?

I'm trying Zaha Hadid, but it's got limited potential. Ah, had I daz? I had a hadz...

:) - I was trying that one myself briefly yesterday. Having a bit of a Hungarian phase at the moment, though I think I'll stop short of anagramming Kálmán Balogh and Félix Lajkó as they're musicians.

So how about 'Slut in yew den' instead?

A clue or two, you say?
How many architects built in England, India and Ireland?
A collaborator not of Mr Hyde but of the ladyfriend of his alter ego...
His two main Irish sites have a Y in their names.

Oops- it did give that impression, phil.

To atone, here's a famous Hungarian (not an architect)- Kobe Lab-Rat.

Or a famous Eastern European (Mitteleuropean?) architect- Si? No! Je pleck! or Je kip Clones.

PS LOB- I got it! But only because I was googling Hungarian architects. Not one I was very familiar with before, so I'll let others guess.
All these Zs, Ks, Js in Euro names make English anagrams tricky. Andrzej Wejchert has been stumping me all day.

Also somewhat appropriate due to his (ahem) cloud-like formations?

Well bang goes my day.:)

I think I've discounted all the golden age Irish boys- Gandon, Pearse, Castle, Ivory, Johnston, Bindon, Roberts, etc., so I'm not sure where to go from here. Trying to remember any architects you've namechecked lately as a starting point. It is an architect, I presume?

But 18 letters long, vowels E I E I O (:D ) and 4 Rs? Shouldn't be too difficult, I'd have thought. I might be back for a clue, but not yet.

Thank you, phil, for giving me back my day.;) I would have been battling for a while yet. Perhaps the 'Sir' threw me? I'd considered Jones, Webb, Vanbrugh, Hawksmoor, Burlington, Campbell, Ware etc, but Wren never entered my head.

;) Yeah, as I was crossing out the letters I found that I had I, R and S left. It took me a little while to twig why.
