Flower-power housing will fully bloom in time

  • Comment

I visualise Bill Dunster's work as that of someone thoroughly dedicated to the cause of resolving the many problems associated with sustainability, and his petal formation flats and maisonettes in high-rise blocks (AJ 10.5.01) are no exception.

All great ideas, initially, are bound to involve some compromises, and in this instance it would seem that certain living areas could miss out on aspect and privacy while flats below the terraces could experience some overshadowing.

Finally, I am sure that the high-rise use of structural timber will prove possible, and I wish Bill Dunster every success in turning this remarkable idea into reality.
