"The World's Most Extraordinary Homes"

Post by jay »

Has anyone watched this show?

I watched the first couple of episodes last night and was pleasantly entertained. I'm a fan of Piers Taylor, the British architect and TV personality from the BBC's "100K House" series... Heard about this show awhile back but was thrown off with the "extraordinary" branding, figuring it was just insanely lavish houses. Not exactly the case, though. (I suppose in the British vernacular the word "extraordinary" is more subdued in their usage than in ours?)
Anyway, it's a BBC show that's streamable on Netflix (free one month trial if you don't want to pay...)

Here's some of the neat houses they explored in the first couple episodes:

Thanks ! That was worth the trip . . .

A strong concept---what, I guess, Mr Wright meant by the Idea---boldly and cleanly executed, is always a pleasure to see . . .
