100 Houses 100 Years gives a fascinating insight into Britain’s built heritage and the way that homes have changed over the last century. From specially commissioned houses for individuals or families to housing built for increased workforces, each of the 100 houses brings a different design style or historical story.
There are semi-detached suburban houses, housing estates, eco-houses, almshouses, converted factories and affordable post-war homes. The architectural styles encompass mock Tudor, modernist, Arts & Crafts and post-modern, and the featured architects include Walter Gropius, Edwin Lutyens, Powell & Moya and David Chipperfield.
The nominations of the houses are written by leading architectural critics and design historians, including Gavin Stamp, Alan Powers, Elain Harwood, Barnabas Calder and Gillian Darley. There are also essays that explore our fascination with housing design, the impact of domestic technology and the appeal of architect-designed houses.
