LAST ITEM HELD MATCHING THIS TITLE STATED:

Manchester, United Kingdom: Manchester University Press, 2000. 229pp looks unused. Architecture, design and the family in Britain tracks the complex and important relationship between the 'ideal' and the 'commonplace', in the social purpose of architecture and design intended for the family. Recognising the importance of the nineteenth-century legacy and examining the cultural agenda to provide a better life, the study is defined by two major periods of national reconstruction. The core areas for consideration include: family homes and new neighbourhoods; the products and schemes for everyday life, and; the housewife and family lifestyle. Identifying patterns of influence, the account balances the popular with the official publications, regional and national exhibitions, and municipal and speculative developments in cultivating a national belief in progress. It is the first time that this breadth of subject matter has been brought together, focusing on the models, texts and exhibitions that cultivated ideas of the practical and ideal for a loosely defined consumer group. This embraced both 'the people' and those of 'moderate means' and was widened to include the poor, and by the 1960s led to the emergence of a new middle-class lifestyle. . Paperback. Very Good. 4to - over 9¾" - 12" tall.
