Cook's Camden

£5.00

Monday 12th March 2018 at 6:30pm  |  Owl Bookshop

Description

The housing projects built in Camden in the 1960s and 1970s when Sydney Cook was borough architect are widely regarded as the most important urban housing built in the UK in the past 100 years. Cook recruited some of the brightest talent available in London at the time and the schemes – which included Alexandra Road, Branch Hill, Fleet Road, Highgate New Town and Maiden Lane – set out a model of housing that continues to command interest and admiration from architects to this day.

‘probably the best housing ever built in Britain’ – Owen Hatherley

‘comprehensive new account of a remarkable borough and its progressive house-building programme in the 1960s and 70s under Sydney Cook.’ – Elizabeth Hopkirk, Building Design

‘a superb exploration of Camden Council’s housing programme’ – Edwin Heathcote, Financial Times
