When European cities rebuilt after World War II, estate housing became a popular solution. New theories of the ideal home were reflected in tracts developed with multi-unit dwellings—be they apartments, townhouses, or garden houses clustered together—while those who moved in often adopted a more shared, communal lifestyle. This abundantly illustrated book profiles fifteen notable examples of such modernist estates, from Scotland to Italy, Spain to Sweden. Along with contemporary photos, StefiOrazi includes archival images of the structures and gathers personal impressions from their residents—some of whom have lived there for generations now.
