9780419188001: Prefabs: The history of the UK Temporary Housing Programme (Studies in History, Planning & the Environment)

The book looks at the emergence of the prefab as a unique housing form. It examines the reasons prefabs have survived way beyond their design life of fifteen years, when other post-war housing types have been demolished. There is no other single text that sets the temporary housing programme in context.
