Dyslexia is more often an affliction for architects than something they help alleviate. But the dyslexic 15-year-old genius Alexander Faludy managed to persuade Peterhouse College, Cambridge to offer him a place with a dictated essay on the influence of classicism on Andrea Palladio. A sound choice of subject if you have to win over Dr David 'Wendy' Watkin, Peterhouse's resident architectural historian, mentor of Dr Stamp etc etc.
