Dulwich's mid-century modern architecture is increasingly recognised for its qualities of light, landscape and lifestyle. In the 1950s, 60s and 70s, around 2,000 new homes were created to the most modern standards without destroying the qualities which had made Dulwich so attractive to previous generations. With both historic and new photography, this book showcases the award-winning work of the Dulwich Estate's architects, Austin Vernon & Partners, working with house builder Wates. Today, there is much to be learned from the architects and landscape planners who saw their role as fundamental to building Britain's modern society.
