'Tower Block' book now online


The full text of the book 'Tower block: modern public housing in England, Scotland, Wales and Northern Ireland' by Miles Glendinning and Stefan Muthesius is now freely available online. Published in 1994 but now out of print, this is a key and highly readable text on the political and architectural ideas that lay behind the post-war high-rise housing boom. There is a link to the online book from the GSA Library catalogue.
