Studies in Design MUP

  • Provides a detailed analysis of the meanings of the design, architecture and decoration of the suburban home in interwar England
  • With its focus on suburban modernism, it makes an important contribution to debates about multiple modernisms in design and architecture in the twentieth century
  • Examines the ways in which the new lower middle classes and aspirational working classes expressed their identities through the architecture, design and decoration of their homes
  • Gives insights into the homemaking activities of 'ordinary' Britons in the interwar housebuilding boom and how these 1920s and 1930s house are lived in today
