Post-War Bath

Building Post-War Bath

In 2013 we embarked on a project thanks to the support of the Heritage Lottery Fund exploring for the  20th century architecture of Post-war Bath.

The exhibition Brutal Bath: Building Post-war Bath at the Museum of Bath Architecture (formerly the Building of Bath Collection) explored the ideals and theories behind post-war British architecture and how it filtered down to Bath.  The Best for the Worst with the Least at the Museum of Bath at Work traced the history of social housing in Bath, revealing the stories behind some of the most significant 20th century expansion in the city.
