M2r's country house is nothing but hot air


I am not an architect. I was accepted, with a certain alacrity I might add, by Liverpool Poly to study such many years ago, but fate decreed otherwise.

Now a regular reader of the AJ, I am fascinated by 'Q&A' and its brief insight into an architect's psyche.

Having seen the recent M2r Architecture design 'modernising country life' (AJ 10.3.05), I fail to see how something that looks surprisingly like the hotair blower in my greenhouse was 'inspired by the surrounding countryside'.

Could it be that such a Luddite Lancastrian would never have made it in the profession, or is Sevenoaks countryside so different from the rural Lancashire of my formative years? Just in case anyone might be wondering - timber engineering.
