Colonial Urban Development. How intriguing to find that the oh-so-very English Victorian town hall up the road from you speaks bastard French as well as 15th-century Florentine and even the Greek of Pericles. It investigates the political, sociological, economic and cultural contexts which conceived the concrete architecture of Britain and are now leading to its demise.
