Are you a wolf or a sheep?

There is nothing wrong with being a sheep.

What would our green and pleasant land be without the Scottish Blackface or the Cheviot? Let’s be honest, they are cute, keep the grass short, make fabulous jumpers and taste fantastic (apologies to the veggies).

We all need sheep.

What never fails to amaze me is how many businesses continue to operate with no understanding of the opportunity afforded to run more efficient and competitive operations. Sheep follow blindly, no matter the conditions and most meet a grizzly end. Sheepdogs, on the other hand, respond to guidance, take direction, match instinct with courage and guile. If it was a straight cerebral duel between a dog and a sheep, my last 50p would be on the sheepdog every time.

The award winning designer and architect Scott Lawrie of Curious Architects, penned the design after being inspired by the Tesla induction coil pioneered by Nikola Tesla in 1887.

The design came from a simple brief for the new and groundbreaking Revolutionall World. CEO, John Curtis said “make it an organic shape, sustainable and able to be run in a carbon neutral way with just a little hint of “magic” in the design”. From Scott’s pen came the most wonderfully organic and carbon neutral building, set to wake up the world to the joys of better and low emission transport.


Scott Lawrie has previously won both the Dean’s List Award and an American Institute of Architect’s Design Award.

John Curtis, Chief Executive of Revolutionall World has never hidden his admiration for Scott’s work. “Scott and the team at Curious are incredible. We gave them what felt like a vague and difficult to interpret general direction and off they went. What they have delivered is nothing short of staggering”

The awards are made a little over a week away and Scott will be in Cannes just in case Revolutionall World scoops it’s first award. He may also drink a glass or two of well earned bubbly.

It is envisaged that the centres will be rolled out globally, over the next 5 years and be a centre piece for each host country’s journey towards low emission transport and clean green journeys.
