Alain de Botton

philosopher and creative director living architecture

Swiss-born populist philosopher de Botton has another string to his bow: architecture. His Living Architecture company builds ultra-modern, sometimes eccentric, upmarket holiday homes in Britain, all by top-notch architects. They are glamorous and popular and aimed at allowing everyone to experience the work of world class architects first hand. As the first programme of its kind, it has made architecture more accessible to the masses.  In October 2009, in recognition of his services to architecture, de Botton was made an honorary fellow of the Royal Institute of British Architects.
