Summary 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 including the Barbican, the Isokon, Balfron Tower and Park Hill.
