Glyndebourne

Just to prove that normal life does still go on in amongst the speculation as to who is going to be the next leader of the Conservative Party and now who on earth can take over from Jeremy Corbyn, I am posting photographs of the roof of Michael and Patty Hopkins’ great opera house at Glyndebourne, one of the most subtle combinations of the rural and the metropolitan:-

One thought on “Glyndebourne

  1. And the interior, with its wonderful use of wood, is pretty good too. Ditto the music !

    They are fine architects (and RAs of course !). How lucky we are to have such a generation of architects – the Hopkinses, Foster, Rogers, Miller, Sue Rogers, Wilkinson, not to mention Piers Gough and Ted Cullinan.
