Architects, eh? You can rely on them to come up with a triangle while mere mortals would have created a rectangle. Christian says he used three posts for his seating area instead of four because that’s all he could fit in his car. But I don’t believe him.

This isn’t the first architect’s garden I’ve seen that uses triangles – remember this garden, one of my all-time favourites?

  1. Must say …. I think I should have waited till I got that 4th post. The triangle looks good but I think the full ‘rectangle’ would have looked better!

  2. Well ok but will need a bit of help from you to upgrade my garden to proper London pouncieness….

  3. Oh …good photo by the way considering the conditions/tightness etc!!

    Wish I’d bought the Lumix rather than the olympus X1 (Xsomething?)…… Doh!

  4. When I was studying architecture I was always taught that there had to be a ‘good reason’ as well as a ‘real reason’ to do something. In other words, if you wanted to design something a bit silly because it looked cool, you had to post-rationalise it convincingly. ‘I did a triangular pergola because I could only fit three posts in the car’. Nice – haven’t heard that one before!

    • Its even worse than that …. I could only get three posts on the trolley with all the other stuff I had brought … my reasoning being that I would come back for the 4th post later … Then I couldn’t be arsed to so did the triangular one …. like to think Corb would have done the same thing?
