Description - Connell, Ward and Lucas by

With their original and innovative projects, Amyas Connell and Basil Ward from New Zealand and the British architect Colin Lucas introduced a new and uncompromising contemporary language of architecture to England in the 1930s. Their simple, clear shapes in concrete and glass still resonate with a novel approach to functional form-giving. This is the first full study of one of the most controversial of modernist practices and is destined to be of classic importance. It opens with a fascinating overview of the historical background and then focuses on detailed studies of individual houses, social housing schemes, shops and caf..s. Each study is fully illustrated with contemporary plans and photographs showing the buildings as they were being built and newly constructed, as well as more recent photographs to show later alterations and changes. The book includes a complete list of projects, a time line and a full bibliography.
