Journeys of Discovery – George Clarke

About This Episode

Michael is joined by George Clarke, the architect, TV presenter, lecturer and writer, best known for his work with Channel 4, including The Restoration Man and George Clarke’s Amazing Spaces.

Growing up on a Sunderland council estate, George was inspired to become an architect, spending summers on building sites with his grandfather.

While studying at Newcastle University School of Architecture, Planning and Landscape, and London’s Bartlett School of Architecture, George supported himself by renovating people’s homes in his spare time, before turning his attention to TV and programmes that demonstrate the opportunity of space and the vital importance of the home.
