I am constantly fascinated by churches and temples, always so beautiful and cleverly built. I often think that modern design and architecture is like a completely different field to these buildings of days gone by, the blend of craft and engineering was incredible. I vaguely remember writing an essay at university about the vaulting of church ceilings. As well as these being so precisely carved by hand, I just love the way something functional and structural can be so pretty and decorative. To me, this is one of the best examples of what design should be.
