Kevin McCloud reveals his top five buildings from 180 episodes of Grand Designs. In this one-off special, Kevin revisits the buildings and people who have most inspired him over the years. It’s an opportunity for him to ruminate on what makes a truly great Grand Designs project. It’s also a chance to revel in the brilliant architectural mix of inspiring homes – from concrete-vaulted glass-fronted pavilions through to heroic restoration projects and handcrafted hobbit houses made of hedgerow and stuck together with dog-lick. But, of course, it’s not just about architecture and construction. This review also covers the human drama, optimism, disasters, despair, risks and rewards that give Grand Designs its enduring appeal.
