Huge, stylish, and comprehensive, England's Post-War Listed Buildings covers over 500 of the country's most striking, and historically relevant, architectural gems. The classic examples range from traditional works by Raymond Erith and Donald McMorran, to the "pop icons" of the 1960s, to internationally outstanding modern works like Stirling and Gowan's Leicester Engineering Building and Foster Associates' offices for Willis Faber Dumas in Ipswich. This fully updated and expanded edition from Elain Harwood, one of the foremost names in modern-architecture writing, contains numerous new entries arranged in an accessible, regional structure, as well as features on telephone boxes, landscapes, memorials, and sculptures.
