With their strikingly simple shapes in concrete and glass, Amyas Connell, Basil Ward, and Colin Lucas introduced a new and uncompromising architecture to England in the 1930s. In the first full account of their innovative practice, architect Dennis Sharp offers a fascinating historical overview of the firm, then focuses on detailed studies of their houses, housing projects, shops, and cafés. Each study is fully illustrated with contemporary plans and photographs showing the buildings under construction, newly constructed, and as they appear now.
