Favourite building number thirty seven – a marsh house (mudhif المضيف ) made from reeds by the Maʻdān in the swamps of southern Iraq, creators unknown.
Favourite building – 'Favourite Buildings' is an ongoing research project that compiles our favourite buildings out there in the world. There is a definite bent towards brutalist architecture, modernist architecture and vernacular architecture. We're not quite sure where this will go but we're hoarders at heart so we'll keep collecting. One day it will make sense.
