Kevins Grand Design

As Im a fan of Grand Designs as well as it being architectural, I thought it was worth a mention. Kevin McCloud  is set to attempt to change the building industry in britain, by making homes that are beautiful, affordable, sustainable and profitable. The program is set to air on Channel 4 on Thursday 8th of DEcember at pm.


Lost in Lace

We went to the Birmingham museum and art Gallery, to see the Lost inLace exhibition. When we were there some of the work exhibbited partitioned the gallery off into different areas, but the material was still translucent enough to still have an open plan feel to the gallery. This was an intresting theme to gallery which I think links in to my theme of arhitecture quite well.


Whilst there I also looked at the plans for the Birmingham Central Library, which was linked with the Lost in Lace because it is surrounded by a large, circular, metal, lattice that surrounds the building. I latter went to see the site where the library was still being constructed.  I like the Plans of the Library as it looks very complex and intricate which intrests me about a building on this scale.
