MiM Mini Guide No.1: The Frinton Park Estate
Our Mini Guide No.1 explores The Frinton Park Estate on the Essex Coast, the largest collection of interwar modernist houses in the country.
The design of the estate was overseen by architect Oliver Hill, with houses, a shopping centre, luxury hotel, train station and offices planned around a long central road. This moderne new town never came to be, but around 40 houses were built, designed by Hill, the estate architect J.T. Shelton and others.
The 48 page guide includes 37 colour images of the surviving houses, plus a history of the estate and a map. The guide is printed on Silk 150 gsm paper, with a 250 gsm matt laminated cover.
MiM Mini Guide No.2: L.C.C. & G.L.C. Selected Projects 1946-86
Our second Mini Guide moves into the postwar period, exploring the non-housing work of London County Council and the Greater London Council between 1946 and 1986.
During this period the L.C.C. and G.L.C. architects’ departments designed a wide range of buildings, including schools, colleges, fire stations, community centres and much more. These buildings have formed the infrastructure of the capital in the postwar period.
They were aided by a number of private architects who designed buildings for the councils. Erno Goldfinger, Denys Lasdun, Chamberlin, Powell & Bon, Terry Farrell and others produced work for or started their careers with the authority.
L.C.C. & G.L.C. Selected Projects 1946-86 brings together over 50 buildings with colour photographs and detailed descriptions. The A5 guide is 80 pages long, and printed on 150gsm Silk paper with a 250gsm cover.
