Classic, rambling McCloud, but all the better for it, albeit not quite what I expected.
I guess what I was expecting was a treatise on internal or external architecture. What you get is more a philosophy of living, and how that (should) shape(s) your home and how your home shapes you. Delightfully green and left field with more than a hint of agent provocateur, and why joined up thinking makes sense. Yes, it does get round to architecture, and design (it's big on design), and recycling, and a shed load of other things as well. And why it's OK to drive a gas guzzler (one careful owner with very, very low mileage), and beautiful 1960's Hofler bass guitars.
