1978

Chris goes to Liverpool University to study architecture. During 1981 -1982 he spends a year gaining practical experience in a London architectural practice, designing a staircase in an industrial development in Milton Keynes. "It's not a remarkable staircase", he comments when visiting it in 1988, "It's just a functional staircase".
