L.C.C & G.L.C Selected Projects 1946-86, Modernism in Metro Mini Guide No.2


Joshua Abbott, author of this invaluable mini-guide is the founder of Modernism in Metro-Land (MiM) website ‘documenting and celebrating’ Modernist and Art Deco buildings in Greater London.  He’s hugely knowledgable and his books are stuffed with excellent suggestions for a trip into ‘Metro-land’, and even an armchair flick through this book reminds us of how little we know about familiar buildings around us.

‘Immediately after the war’, Josh explains, ‘The L.C.C. and G.L.C. architects’ departments designed a wide range of buildings, including schools, colleges, fire stations, community centres and much more. These buildings have formed the infrastructure of the capital in the postwar period. They were aided by a number of private architects who designed buildings for the councils. Erno Goldfinger, Denys Lasdun, Chamberlin, Powell & Bon, Terry Farrell and others produced work for or started their careers with the authority.’

L.C.C. & G.L.C. Selected Projects 1946-86 brings together over 50 buildings with colour photographs and detailed descriptions.
