If you've been joining us over on the Grand Designs Instagram account for Grand Designs Live from Home, you'll have already been party to some intriguing conversations about self-build and renovation projects with host Kunle Barker and a suite of spectacular expert guests.
On the 28th May, Kunle was joined in conversation by Kevin McCloud himself, for an exclusive conversation entitled 'Models and Ideal Worlds'.
You may have already caught a special mini-episode of Grand Designs, as featured as part of Matt Lucas' Reasons to Be Cheerful on Channel 4, which would have introduced you to Kevin McCloud's (or his alter-ego Barry's) interest in model-making. Kevin also appeared on Grayson Perry's Art Club to unveil his own 'mind palace', which he'd made by hand from packing cardboard and cork.
From the history of model-making in construction all the way through to how models are being used by architects today, Kevin and Kunle will be looked at the value these miniature explorations of space and architecture have to offer in the creative process, as well as looking at how easy it is to get to grips with model-making at home – the perfect lockdown activity to keep idle hands busy.
