My article on Tadao Ando’s House in Sri Lanka is published on Dezeen. The text has been replenished with lots of unpublished anecdotes that you might enjoy reading about. I was fortunate enough to actually visit it. (BTW you have to scroll down quite a bit to get to the beginning of my text.)

My Article on Tadao Ando’s House in Sri Lanka for the Sunday Telegraph’s supplement magazine, Stella. I hardly recognized my own text, as it has been through the editorial mill. Still, I’m putting it up on my blog. (dezeen has published a version that is more faithful to my original text)

My review of Tadao Ando’s lecture at the Royal Institution last week. After the lecture, I heard an elderly couple (I wonder who they were…) discussing how they were impressed with Ando’s sense of humour. I realised then that the general perception of Ando has been that he is a moody architect, with ferocious tantrums. I find him rather amusing, especially with his Osaka dialect. At 70, he appears incredibly youthful. Perhaps you lot (by that, I mean, ‘young’ architects) should take up some boxing to keep up with him?
