The 70s House
In his book, David Heathcote provides a new and fundamentally positive interpretation of the period. He explains how the decade brought forward a plethora of highly diverse styles -- Brutalism, Ad Hocism, Eco/Craft Design, Revivalism/Reclaimism and Postmodernism. With the interest in all things futuristic being as much a part of the period as the Victorian Revival and the self-sufficiency/craft craze. Organised by individual style, this book, with its combination of newly commissioned photography and archive images, will be an essential text and visual resource for anyone interested in the 70s.
