Description

Modernist Estates takes an inside look at remarkable and sometimes controversial estates in Britain and examines the impact they have on their communities. Featuring twenty-one modernist homes and their residents, it presents an overview of the buildings and architects, considers the historical and political context, and explores what it's like to live on a modernist estate today. Through interviews and photography, this unique book offers a rare insight into the lives of significant buildings including the Barbican, the Isokon, Balfron Tower and Park Hill.

Reviews

'Modernist Estates - with its yellow cloth quarter binding and grey card covers - will sit beautifully on any mid-century bookshelf or coffee table. Filled with fascinating architectural history, interesting people, and a good snoop around some gorgeous interiors, it's hard to see what's not to love.' Mid-century Magazine 'attractive design and high quality production match its subject-matter and its photography is first-rate. ... for those with an interest in modernist housing and the contemporary life-styles which go with it, I'm happy to recommend it.' London Historians
