Description

The election, in 1979, of a Conservative administration led by Margaret Thatcher effectively marked the end of Britain’s heroic era of social housing provision. Over the next four decades, successive governments put faith in the private sector’s capacity to build homes in the numbers Britain needs. Consistently, that faith proved unfounded. The resultant housing shortfall has sent property prices rocketing beyond the reach of younger people, and led to record levels of homelessness and rough sleeping.

Project Interrupted records a series of lectures by acclaimed British housing architects. Neave Brown and Kate Macintosh were responsible for some of the most innovative housing commissioned by local authorities in the 1960s and 1970s; Peter Barber, Farshid Moussavi and Witherford Watson Mann navigate the very different conditions of the early twenty-first century. At a moment when Britain is finally beginning to confront the enormity of its housing crisis, Project Interrupted asks what we can learn from the experiences of a previous generation and hears from some of the most ambitious architects working in the field of housing today about the challenges and opportunities that lie ahead.

Project Interrupted has been published following a successful crowd-funding campaign with over 1000 backers highlighting interest in the book from a wide audience.
