I love this image of a tech-clever kid’s attic. Could be computers, train sets, microscopes, anything. May every whiz-kid have an attic full of wires and switches, though preferably minus the explosives. A shed will do nicely too.
‘From the outside, the Concorde is familiar for its dramatic clarity of line; inside, it’s like a whiz-kid’s attic – ‘Careful how you go, don’t trip on the wires, mind the switches, don’t touch the explosives.”
