Congratulations Rory, Will and Laura. Enjoyed also this Glasgow Edinburgh edition. Excellent.
Chris, as I've mentioned to you before, your single point perspective of Abando is a true work of art. As Kahn said, "put simply, hand drawing is the language of the architect"
As good as all these projects undoubtedly are, there is now empirical study which clearly confirms that the physical environment, architecture and good design can improve life to the extent that it can reduce the rate of decline in people with a terminal illness or with dementia. The considered design of a school environment can also markedly improve levels of attainment among average students. Consequently project like Maggie's and Burntwood School are for me the most deserving. Whitworth is stunning absolutely, but not life extending, enhancing nor affirming to the same extent.
Maggie’s for me therefore.
