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.

Growing up in Dulwich Paul Davis's best friend was Philip Vernon, and Austin Vernon & Partners provided his first architectural work experience, colouring estate layouts. After qualifying, he founded two successful architectural firms and is recognised as a leading residential architect of his generation. Ian McInnes has been the chair of the Dulwich Society since 2008. He is a retired architect with a particular interest in mid-century modernism. He has recently been elected as the chair of the 20th Century Society having, at different times, filled the roles of events secretary and treasurer. Between 2012-17, he was also chair of the Society's casework committee. Catherine Samy is a non-fiction writer and a consultant in international corporate communications. Her passion for modern architecture was sparked by the brutalist Kenyatta International Conference Centre, built in her home city of Nairobi in the early 70s. She has been involved in many personal architecture projects.
