I thought we were done with this kind of lunacy?
Absolutely love the library. However, and i hate to be Peter Pedant, but Castleford Bridge by McDowell and Benedetti has ended up in a place called Wakeford and not where it should be - in Wakefield.
Thanks for the kind review. I like to think my uneducated ramblings come under the "cheerily demotic tone" category but i must assure prospective readers that we have at least three proper academics on board who hopefully provide a bit of intellectual light and shade.
We have been pleasantly surprised by the amount of interest in The Modernist, and not just from the geographic region we currently cover, and the ambition is to slowly expand the remit so the whole of the country is eventually covered.
There seems to be a great appetite for what we initially thought to be quite a delphic subject and i hope we are proving that there is much of architectural interest outside the obvious usual subjects in the south east.*
*obligatory provincial dig at London.
I am lost for words (which is *very* rare for me).
I like the bike racks though!
As with my moan on the Future Townhouse project - this scheme continues the modern malaise of car parking right up hard to the front of the house.
No chance for an attractive front garden and a reduced chance for interaction with neighbours.
It encourages the seamless transition from your mobile metal box straight into your static brick box. Why cant there be a distinct and physical separation between home and car or have we become so attached to our cars we feel the need to keep them close at hand like a pampered child?
Where can i get a copy of this booklet?
A depressing waste of money at a time when Manchester apparently hasnt got any.
Is there anyone, outside of Preston City Council, who still thinks this is a good idea?
I lament the loss of the front garden in this country. People are now clearly too traumatised in having to walk more than 2 metres from their cars to their front doors. God forbid one should have to talk to ones neighbours in the process.
