Michael Frayn

  • a life in architecture


    As a playwright, Michael Frayn feels he should put in a good word for the 'much-attacked' National Theatre (pictured).The approach from the riverside 'makes the heart lift and when you get inside the foyer you're certain you're going to have a good time.Quite why the foyers work so well I don't know. It's partly because they're quite complicated spaces and I think the combination of concrete with the shutter markings and carpets is rather dramatic.'
