Hello friends! My newest book was created during this terrible lockdown and it is out on September 2nd 2021. It’s called Unbuilt – Radical Visions of a Future That Never Arrived and you can pre-order it from Waterstone’s. It’s about unfinished architecture and ideas about the future that never came true, touching on tech, transport, science and city design. We hope to be doing a launch and some talks this autumn.

Some exciting news just in about my next book, which is about unbuilt architecture and fantasies about the future of technology, travel and living that never came true. We’ve just got some interesting design drafts in, we’re doing lots of edits, and most excitingly of all the book will be translated into German to be published in Deutschland as well as in English in the UK next year. Watch this space.
Been in Berlin a lot this autumn, enjoying its lakes and lively goings on. I love this tale of one house and its special story, here’s my piece for The Daily Telegraph
Had a really enjoyable time yesterday talking at Bloomsbury Literary Festival about my newest book, Lido. It was an online event but that meant more of you could listen in, and from outside of London too.
Thanks to everyone who bought a ticket and asked a question and thanks to the Festival for inviting me.
Had a blast talking on Bloomsbury Radio too.
