Modernist Estates takes an inside look at remarkable and sometimes controversial estates in Britain and examines the impact they have on their communities. Featuring twenty-one modernist homes and their residents, it presents an overview of the buildings and architects, considers the historical and political context, and explores what it’s like to live on a modernist estate today. Through interviews and photography, this unique book offers a rare insight into the lives of significant buildings incling the Barbican, the Isokon, Balfron Tower and Park Hill.

'Modernist Estates – with its yellow cloth quarter binding and grey card covers – will sit beautifully on any mid-century bookshelf or coffee table. Filled with fascinating architectural history, interesting people, and a good snoop around some gorgeous interiors, it’s hard to see what’s not to love.'
