Huts and the imaginationBy
We begin today's program with a look at one of the most fundamental forms of architecture, the hut. The very word 'hut' casts a spell on anyone who has ever dreamed of having a little bolthole in the bush or by the sea to escape the complexities of the modern world. The hut is the most universal and ancient form of vernacular architecture. And although you might never have built your own hut, the appeal of these small spaces are easy to grasp for anyone who ever built a cubby as a child.
Our first guest has had a long love affair with huts.
