Space, Hope and Brutalism is the first major book to study English architecture between 1945 and 1975 in its entirety. Challenging previous scholarship on the subject and uncovering vast amounts of new material at the boundaries between architectural and social history. Buildings of all budgets and styles are examined, from major universities to the modest café. The book is illustrated with stunning new photography that reveals the logic, aspirations, and beauty of hundreds of buildings throughout England, at the point where many are disappearing or are being mutilated.
Elain Harwood is Senior Architectural Investigator at English Heritage, Trustee of the Twentieth Century Society and author of the Pevsner City Guide to Nottingham.
