the origin of this page is described in daffodil 52:

Today i am beginning a digital catalog of some of my designs and books rescued from inaccessible parts of my memory or archive

listed designs

listed books

(in the UK a 'listed' building is an antique that is considered to be worth preserving!)

The first antique design that comes to mind is a proposal for a mobile Welsh Assembly building, moving each year to a different town in Wales, as does the National Eisteddfod.

The idea of rescuing this design came to me this morning when i switched on the radio and heard that the new Senedd or Welsh Assemby Building in Cardiff is being opened today.

Still feeling sorry for my ignored design proposal, i decided to bring it to light in softopia, my public writing place, TODAY!

...then generalising that idea, i decide to catalogue some of my hidden or neglected designs... and books also...
