Modernist Estates: the buildings and the people who live in them by Stefi Orazi, published by Frances Lincoln.

Stefi Orazi's book takes the reader inside some of London's most remarkable - and occasionally controversial - modernist residential housing schemes. Rather than simply focusing on their external appearance and their contribution to the cityscape, Modernist Estates reveals what it is like to actually live in these buildings through a series of interviews with residents.

The book features interviews with twenty-one residents of modernist estates alongside an overview of the buildings, their designers and their historical and political context.

Generously illustrated with colour photography, Modernist Estates offers an exceptional insight into the lives of London landmarks including the Barbican, the Isokon, Balfron Tower and Park Hill.
