Favourite Place

As the Director, Bob is allowed to choose two places...

"The first is the very top of Hellvellyn in the Lake District. It’s the fantastic view you get from the top after a hard climb (especially via Striding Edge) to arrive at this other-worldly place like the surface of the Moon. My second is much more design-focused; the Piazza del Popolo in Todi. From the first time I saw Francis Bacon’s drawings in ‘Design for Cities’, to my later visit it has always appeared magical, having enclosure, activity, different levels and excellent restaurants!"
