About

Welcome to Post-War Buildings. This site is an online resource and discussion forum for those interested in architecture of the post-war era. Taking its cue from Lionel Esher’s, A Broken Wave: The Rebuilding of England 1940-1980, the site focuses upon buildings built or planned during the 40 year period between 1945 and 1985. It maps out the architectural innovation and experiment that shaped the post-war world in the years following the cessation of hostilities in Europe up to the economic and political re-organisation of the 1980s.
