Edwardians and their Houses: The New Life of Old England

Author(s): Timothy Brittain-Catlin


Edwardian domestic architecture was beautiful and varied in style, and was very often designed and built to an unprecedented level of sophistication. It was also astonishingly innovative and provided new building types for weekends, sport, and gardening, as well as fascinating insights into attitudes to historic architecture, health, and science. This book is the first radical overview of the period since the 1970's and focuses on how the leading circle of the Liberal Party, who built incessantly and influenced the pattern of building across England at every scale. It also looks at the building literature of the period and traces the links between these houses and suburbs, as well as the other creative forms of the period. It is part of a new movement to explore the ways in which architectural history is recorded and results in an original interpretation of British culture of the period.
