Early in his career Peter Womersley, born in Nottinghamshire, settled in the Scottish Borders from where he operated a small architecture practice designing buildings as far afield as the Ayrshire coast, Bath and Hong Kong. His remaining legacy in the Borders demonstrates that his work was unashamedly modern and executed with a 1:1 attention to detail. In this talk architects Gordon Duffy and Rebecca Wober illuminate his working process and the potential for his work to host new life.
