Menai


A weekend spent in Wales by the Menai Strait. A beautiful stretch of coast, mountains on one side, the Isle of Anglesey on the other. A friend has bought a house inside the medieval walls of Caenarfon, the perfect place to settle down for winter.

100% Design

Last Friday I went to the 100% Design expo in London. I had intended to go for a few years but never managed it. It was a great day with many very lovely and inspiring things to see. Also delightful to spend a day surrounded by people who had brought their ideas to fruition. One of the best sections was 100% materials, which featured a vast selection of newly developed materials for architectural and other purposes. The blue image above is an example of a translucent concrete. How very pleasing.
