This pre-eminence as a writer, or more specifically compiler, rather than practitioner, is duly confirmed by his own building endeavours which were few in number and quickly dumbed down from the Czech-inspired white cuboids of Torilla and Shangri-La into a workaday bricky pragmatism of quite stunning banality, with flat roofs that began leaking soon after completion.
