A few years ago, I watched on TV Grand Designs with great interest. I even think that I bought a few issues of the Grand Designs magazine. But that time is long gone since neither is available now in Canada.
It is not that the brand has not continued to grow. Kevin McCloud expanded it with the Grand Designs Live event in UK. Voted Consumer Show of the Year, the event brings design and inspiration for your home, combining cutting-edge design products, interactivity and an eco-friendly message. With so many reruns on TV, it seems tat they could be a space for discovering what people are building in UK and Europe. After all, modern architecture is more developed there than here.
Although the last episodes of the show dated from 2008, I would also like to be able to watch them – since I never saw them. To give you an idea of the TV show, browse the modern homes showcased on Grand Designs. Plus, I shared two modern houses that are featured in their latest issue in an attempt to convince you about what we are missing.
