Project Summary

I am currently in my final year of a PhD researching the reconstruction of the South Western cities of Bristol, Plymouth and Exeter. I am particularly interested in the political and architectural continuity between the inter-war and post-war eras and the challenges faced by local authorities in building post-war.
