Well, any well educated cat would.....

Is she for or against revival trends in architecture?

Toddlerteaplease Sat 20-Oct-18 12:08:59

She is for gothic revival as long as it doesn't ruin original gothic. Other revivals she's not to keen on. Although she thinks if it's done well it can be ok.

You'll have to take her on a cathedral tour!

Ha ha my regular church is an AWN Pugin cathedral. She's probably quite enjoy it.

I love it, such an intelligent girl!

Smith thinks Romanesque is far superior. But they both like the two 1960's cathedrals.

I discussed it with Harry and he doesn’t have an opinion either way, although he’s not a fan of modern architecture

Snorg says she agrees.

My younger cat has a sneaky liking for Brutalism. She won't listen to me saying that most brutalist buildings are hideous and, furthermore, very uncomfortable to be in. My old cat is a fan of Baroque.

Cheddar quite likes some brutalism. I went to Durham last week and she admired a picture of Dunelm House. The brutalist university students union.
She adores Paddy's wigwam as she loves Reytiens glass. She has discussions about it over face time with her cousins, who are in charge of the Archdiocese. (Their slave is the Archbishop)grin

I asked Ollie. He blinked at me and said mama

I asked Weezolcat. It would seem one has staff for this kind of thing.

She's added 'Architecture - learn all of it' to my list of jobs.

Mine like late 50's/early 60's council house style. Loads of large windowsills to occupy (and large windows to look out of). Decent sized rooms to gallop about. Stairs not too steep & not too shallow, and wall cupboards to snuggle in.

Then again they were brought up in a commune without any formal schooling...
