Have Warner Bros. struck some kind of weird product placement deal with Norman Foster? Posters for the new Harry Potter movie prominently feature structures designed by the architect, namely the Willis Building and City Hall. The previous flick was promoted by a Gherkin-focussed image, while that same film also featured a scene in which Lord Foster's Millennium Bridge was destroyed by yobbo death eaters. What are the odds that the final confrontation between the boy wizard and he-who-must-not-be-named will take place on top of the British Museum's glass roof?
