The Modern House Revisited: Journal 2

This journal include articles about a range of individual houses, from Harbour Meadow, Birdham to Dorich House at Kingston by way of the Villa Savoye and houses open to the public in Europe and America. There are thematic essays on patrons, textiles, plastics in the modern house, a fascinating interview with the architect Elisabeth Benjamin and a technical appraisal of conservation work to three 1930s houses. Perhaps most important for the historian of the modern house is Jeremy Gould’s invaluable gazetteer of imoprtant modern houses in the UK and Ireland.
