so here we go

So here we go, tm#3, still engrossed by our infrastructure and now expanding the definition and the range.

While there is still much to do here in the UK, and there are many exciting projects emerging which can not yet be discussed, the prospect of guiding future design by reference to a better understanding of social, environmental and truly economic infrastructure from other places is too attractive.

There is functionality and purpose in infrastructure, and there is also delight, in the form, the ingenuity and the absolute appropriateness of the best of it.  This is not to say that it’s all mutually relevant, that would be idealistic, but there is a joy in observing, engaging and learning, and it’s about time time was found to fully appreciate it.
