Modernist Semis and Terraces in England
Illustrated with line drawings and photographs of more than 30 examples from around the country, this book examines Modernist semi-detached and terraced houses within the broader context of the Modern Movement in Europe, as well as the inter-war building boom in suburban Britain. It shows how these houses speak of a time of political, social and artistic unrest, and a world where the avant-garde architects sought to capture the spirit of modern technology in their designs for the average home owner.
