Specifically, The Experience of Modernism demonstrates how architecture has helped to reshape the fabric and structure of postwar British cities.

""Crammed to bursting with valuable evidence and sharp insight... undoubtedly makes an important contribution to the contemporary re-evaluation of architectural modernism..""-RIBA "There has been no comprehensive account of how the Modern Movement came to be established in Britain. John Gold's book helps fill this lacuna...excellent book.."-Irenee Scalbert "John Gold's survey of a quarter of a century of the modern movement lends a useful historical perspective to...the renewed attention on the definition and attraction of city life."-Matthew Saunders
