Favourite building in the World:
Castlevecchio, Verona. Redesigned and completed by Carlo Scarpa, I’ve selected this for its attention to architectural detail, seamlessly integrated within the old medieval castle. Scarpa’s detail could be missed as it displays sculpture and painting for the masses, yet the attention to reveals and architectural phenomenology, spanning the entirety of the site, rewards a unique secondary experience that many who visit fail to see.
Favourite building in Liverpool:
Everyman Theatre. The respect given to the history of the old theatre and consideration in the repurposing of material in its reconstruction gives an atmospheric experience of the old that is hard to accomplish in new.
