Book review: Lost Futures

'A haunting glimpse of the future that never quite happened'

The Courtauldian has reviewed Lost Futures - the exhibition catalogue for the Royal Academy's Futures Found: The Real and Imagined Cityscapes of Post-war Britain.

'The journey from construction to demolition is charted by Owen Hopkins in Lost Futures: The Disappearing Architecture of Post-War Britain, a book which offers neither an attack or eulogy, but a balanced presentation of thirty-five post-war buildings built between 1945 and 1977 which are all now scheduled for destruction or major alteration'
