- for those that like their Architecture
Klunk – I love you!
Am a big fan of Meades – get his DVD boxset if you don’t already have it. And also of Brutalism – we’re going to have a single storey extension to our (brick built) 60s bungalow. I’m trying to get the architect to slip in a reference to brutalism in there (much to Mrs North’s annoyance!).
EDIT: I spent 2 weeks on jury service in Preston last year. Parked every day in the magnificent (and now listed!) Preston Bus Station.Posted 4 years ago
Ugh! There’s so much egotism in architecture – that Zaha Hadid has the biggest ego of them all.
This is good architecture: human scaled, modest, practical, enduring and still looks as fresh as the day it was built (the architect is a family friend, we used to climb with him and I helped build the garden so I admit to being somewhat biased.)
Ourman – when were you on the jury at Preston? I was there 12 to 23 August. Only sat on one case though. I quite liked the bus station car park; it’s grubby but works well and is easy to use.Posted 4 years agoYakSubscriber
Peter Aldington’s Garden and Three Houses is a real inspiration. Beautiful spaces, great play with light and shade, simple materials and a great relationship with the garden. Possibly my favourite piece of small scale residential architecture ever.
A great project for you to be involved with.Posted 4 years ago
Just watched it. I’ve heard of his name, but had never seen the houses. Not all of it is to my taste outside (though the gardens are wonderful – good work globalti!), but inside the appearance of flow and the light are amazing. I want my home to feel like that.Posted 4 years ago
It’s a shame that TV has become so dreadful, that I have stopped watching live TV completely. But it does mean I miss out on some gems.
Sometimes I’m lucky to catch things on iPlayer because people post something like this. Please continue to post about good TV programmes!
