Tower Block book

Please find a link here to the book on which this project is based - Miles Glendinning and Stefan Muthesius's 1994 'Tower Block: Modern Public Housing in England, Scotland, Wales, and Northern Ireland'.

The book documents and analyses the postwar UK mass housing drive both through a series of thematic chapters covering both architectural-social theory and the political and organisational background, and a comprehensive two-part gazetteer of statistical data and biographical references. This definitive text, out of print for the past decade, has now been digitised and is made available below, in PDF format, for anyone to use. The gazetteer data contained in it also forms the basis of our open-ended on-line resource.
