With their original and innovative projects, Amyas Connell and Basil Ward from New Zealand and the British architect Colin Lucas introduced a new and uncompromising contemporary language of architecture to England in the 1930s. Their simple, clear shapes in concrete and glass still resonate with a novel approach to functional form-giving.

The book opens with a fascinating overview of the historical background and then focuses on detailed studies of individual houses, social housing schemes, shops and cafés. Each study is fully illustrated with contemporary plans and photographs showing the buildings as they were being built and newly constructed, as well as more recent photographs to show later alterations and changes. It includes a complete list of projects, a time-line and a full bibliography.
