Description

This book looks at the design solutions developed during the 20th and the 21st centuries, and illustrates over 200 of the best projects. It is both a guide to the most significant schemes built in Britain since 1900 and a resource for practitioners and students of the built environment. It provides an overview of the evolution of housing development during the last 108 years and includes present day schemes and estate regeneration as well as special sections on housing in Scotland and Northern Ireland.

This fully updatednew edition includes a new chapter on the development of design concepts and projects built since 1999, and emphasises the concept of creating sustainable communities. Referring extensively to relevant websites, journals and publications, it provides a valuable resource for anyone engaged in housing design wishing to conduct further research. It is a valuable sourcebook for this booming industry. It is a comprehensive history of housing from 1900 to the present day. It is a unique and authoritative reference, presented in full colour with plans.
