What a Magnificent Departure Lounge

. . . for a weekend away. Liverpool Street Rail Station. This week I'm taking you to the Forest of Epping. All aboard.

The repurposing of a submersible used in oil rig rescues to a London canal. I like the fact that there’s transport on hand to prevent cabin fever.

New Apartment Blocks Needn't be Boring

Here are some extremely smart ones from the London Borough of Camden. The blocks are reminiscent of the famous and much more expensive Yoo Building in St John's Wood. Architects who can work with a proportionality that approximates the golden mean are in my view the ones worthy of such public housing commissions - or any other commission for that matter.

OK, since the UK Prime Minister is apparently doing a "whistle-stop tour to France, Spain and Germany" - but not The Netherlands, I am naming my lovely area of the West End Little Amsterdam. So there. Please apply here if you have ideas for a Little Rijksmuseum, more cargo bikes, Dutch beer, gabled buildings and canals. Thank you.
