Favourite Building in Liverpool:

From my love of all things Art Deco, I have always had a fondness for the Littlewoods Building, Edge Hill.

Favourite Building in the world:

I don’t have a single favourite building, however, I have always found the Art Deco period of architecture most appealing. Their designs can look so simple, almost classical, with a minimal palette, playing to my love of playful clearly defined planes and curves. Go closer, then inside, and as the scale reduces the same detailing can so often surprise and amaze with its complexity and completeness. Examples range from the Hoover and Daily Express Buildings in London, to Tram shelters in Brighton and Hove. A style of its time, to me it symbolises a hopeful optimism for technology and the future. Timeless.
