This book provides the first study of approaches to appraising and conserving mainstream architecture of the twentieth century - commercial buildings, industrial buildings and housing. Architects, surveyors and conservationists are now appreciating the extent of this challenge. Sufficient research and practical progress has now been undertaken in this field to provide useful material for a text which will be both timely and of broad appeal.
