    A Guide to Modernism in Metro-Land is your essential pocket guide to the modernist architecture of London’s suburbs. Inspired by John Betjeman’s 1973 documentary Metro-Land and the writing of Ian Nairn, it examines the growth of the city’s suburbs from the 1920s up to the present day – a story that is closely interwoven with the development of innovative architecture in Britain – through its most remarkable modernist buildings. Featuring work by architects such as Charles Holden, Erno Goldfinger and Norman Foster, the book covers nine London boroughs and two counties: Barnet, Brent, Ealing, Enfield, Haringey, Harrow, Hillingdon, Hounslow, Richmond, Hertfordshire and Buckinghamshire.
