‘The worst building in the world awards’

Comment

Fascinating and true. In designing and building my own home (as an architect) I too took a view to consider my neighbours and sense of place. The response being a house that aesthetically respects its neighbours but internally provides a home that I (we) can live in and enjoy. We don't live on the outside of our homes, we live on the inside and that is where we need to focus the design effort, the form and function of a Victorian terrace house has stood the test of time but its environmental quality and impact are showing. The external place making (streets and spaces) provides delight which is valued too but both external appearance and internal enjoyment need to be weighed respectively. Remember we live in an environment where we spend a lot more time indoors!
