The second in a series on modern residential architecture, this title illustrates the exemplary city planning, housing projects and suburban redevelopment programs of post-WWII England. This volume deals with a country whose high standards of living have determined the high level of economic, technical and artistic solutions to the problem of housing in heavily populated regions. Profiting from the mistakes of an earlier period of rapid industrial expansion, and influenced by modern sociology, English architects have created contemporary housing that is a model for the entire world. Scale models, blueprints, regional and detailed maps and ground plans, photographs of buildings and drawings of construction details make this volume invaluable for everyone concerned with building homes.
