Concretopia: A Journey around the Rebuilding of Postwar Britain – John Grindrod

£9.99

Paperback

Was Britain’s postwar rebuilding the height of mid-century chic or the concrete embodiment of crap towns? John Grindrod decided to find out how blitzed, slum-ridden and crumbling austerity Britain became, in a few short years, a space-age world of concrete, steel and glass. What he finds is a story of dazzling space-age optimism, ingenuity and helipads – so many helipads – tempered by protests, deadly collapses and scandals that shook the government.
