Homes by Heroes

"I could buy this," excitedly.

"Why might you want it?"

"He's a Hero!  It's his own house!"

"And what would you do in Welwyn Garden City?  I don't want to live in Welwyn Garden City much as I admire it."

Long pause:

"I could grow up."

Precisely.

I would love to see the kind of house that Le Corbusier might have built for himself!

Would you get the furnishings as well?

I think I'd stick to Frank Lloyd Wright's gaff, myself!

Blue, the bedrooms would have been too small probably.

You'll just have to put up with pietra serena cortile and vaulted ceilings, Small.

Nice-looking place.

Of course, it's nothing whatever like that kind of thing the hoi-polloi had to put up with in Welwyn or any other new town.

Make all architects live in the tower blocks they design for the masses, say I.
