The Best of Grand Designs

Kevin McCloud is widely recognised as the leading commentator on modern architecture and design in Britain. He has built up this reputation over the past decade as the presenter of Grand Designs, the ground-breaking television series that covers the conception and construction of a series of unique houses. Such has been the success of this iconic programme that it has spawned a further successful series 'Grand Designs Australia,. Supported by the publication of the bestselling Grand Designs magazine, the brand has also showcased some of Britain,s most innovative architects with the Grand Design Awards. Kevin has been the constant lightning rod, as he observes and interprets each epic construction from laying the foundations, right through to the completed house. He has been the storyteller of joy and sorrow, laughter and despair, torment and triumph as each project evolves from the architects, plans into a physical structure. It has all made for superb television. In 2012, to celebrate fourteen glorious years of programming, as well as ten years of hosting the Stirling Prize, Kevin now delves into the archives to highlight which were his favourite projects, and why?
Supported with stunning photography, building plans and Kevin,s own unique analysis of each project, it will be a remarkable book to leaf through and relive the memories we all share. Reflecting the people behind the projects, too, the book is organised around the key themes critical to Kevin of nesting, statement and protection. From the unique ecological approach of woodsman Ben Law in Prickly Nut Wood, Sussex, to the experimental quirkiness of Sarah Wigglesworth and Jeremy Till,s straw bale house in Islington, London, Kevin will demonstrate how this series has been a 'moment, in television history and why it has an important legacy for good house design.

Kevin McCloud is the presenter of Channel 4's BAFTA nominated 'Grand Designs', which has now covered over 100 projects. He has also hosted the annual coverage of the Stirling Prize and made series about the Grand Tour, urban regeneration, the slums of Mumbai and his shed. A building historian and trained designer by background, Kevin has also written extensively about architecture, decoration, design, lighting, colour, sustainability and his shed. His day job is making television programmes. His other day job is running Hab Housing, a green development business he founded. Kevin is an Honorary Fellow of the Royal Institute of British Architects.
