A complete celebration of Britain s favourite architectural show.Grand Designs is broadcast in over 130 countries and regularly gleans 5 million viewers in the UK.

The Best of Grand Designs charts where domestic architecture has come from, and is moving to, in the first decade or so of a new millennium. And it places people at the centre of the stories of these buildings.Each project is supported by beautiful photography, building plans and Kevin s own personal analysis, together with commentary from his long-time collaborator, Isabel Allen.From the off-grid ecological approach of woodsman Ben Law in Sussex to the quirky experimentalism of Sarah Wigglesworth and Jeremy Till s straw bale house in London, Kevin demonstrates how Grand Designs continues to contribute to television history and why it provides an important legacy for good house design.
