Caroline Quentin and Piers Taylor cast their extraordinary homes net further afield to India. Their first stop in The World’s Most Extraordinary Homes is just outside Mumbai to visit a fortress mixed with a traditional Indian courtyard house, where wild grasses and trees grow inside as well as out. Next they head to the mountains to see a house built using bridges, with few walls and no front door. House three is built into the side of a river bank, while the final dwelling is made from recycled materials and takes even Piers’ breath away. ‘The future of architecture? I think it’s this!’ he declares.
