Most of Europe’s housing was built between 1945 and 1975. It took only 30 years to not only renew the stock but also significantly expand it. More than 50 estates and buildings from throughout Europe and the United Kingdom are presented in this detailed compendium of post-war housing, which delves into how this renewal process was implemented. Comparisons reveal universal themes, as well as local aspects integrated in the architecture. As a whole, the research forms the basis for a fresh assessment of buildings from this period. Contrary to the generally negative image they have received, the projects are highly diverse, experimental, and specific to the local context.
