This morning’s weather made me think of Alan Power’s talk yesterday in which he mentioned one of the most basic of our physical needs – the need for shelter. Alongside this thought is the notion that is reflected throughout the exhibition, that no matter what grand visions an architect might have, ultimately his or her buildings are for people to inhabit and must fulfil certain functions.

What a pleasure to be indoors in a safe, warm and dry place.
