World-class architecture for rent

I like this concept.  Founded by the author and philosopher, Alain de Botton (love his books I’ve read so far), Living Architecture is a social enterprise inspired by

desire for people to be able to experience what it is like to live, eat and sleep in a space designed by an outstanding architectural practice. Whilst there are examples of great modern buildings in Britain, they tend to be in places that one passes through (eg. airports, museums, offices), and the few modern houses that exist are almost all in private hands and cannot be visited.

And so,

Living Architecture has asked a series of great architects to build houses around the UK and has made these available to rent for holidays all year round.
