British Provincial Civic Design and the Building of Late-Victorian and Edwardian Cities, 1880-1914
This work consists of an examination of examples of civic design in Britain occurring within a number of large sized provincial settlements from about 1880 to 1914. It identifies the design and planning principles that appeared to govern civic design as well as investigating its features as it appeared in practice by analysing structural and technical design components, internal arrangements and the surroundings of public buildings erected at the time. This book contains six color photographs and twelve black and white photographs.
“Although several books have looked at the buildings of the Edwardian period, this book examines the urban spaces, which are equally important. In providing this focus, it emphasises the importance of the complementary solid and void of urban design, and it provides an understanding of existing town and city centres, which will be a useful basis for decision making should change and development be proposed.” – Professor Richard Fellows, Department of Architecture, The University of Huddersfield
