I’ve blogged about it and so here is the page on this website that covers #buildingpassions.
#buildingpassions is the tag for my forthcoming book which covers Sir John Wolfe Barry and many other people and topics that feature on this website which I started developing back in 2017.
The book is due to be published by end September 2019 and then hard launched within a few months at a venue yet to be decided. Tower Bridge might be the obvious one but then I don’t always choose simple options.
#buildingpassions is also more broadly about rebranding the built environment for many people around the world who have become disillusioned with the physical aspects of their communities. This is not just a modern issue, it started way back in time.
I’m not doing anything groundbreaking (forgive the pun) as others have gone before. Roma Agrawal has been instrumental in highlighting the importance of our structural legacy through her bestseller ‘BUILT’ and her wider work in public engagement.
She and I both happen to have been born in India, home of the Taj Mahal, arguably one of the most beautiful and passionate structures ever created by humans.
