Royal Festival Hall : London County Council, Leslie Martin and Peter Moro by John McKean( Book )

: "The Royal Festival Hall is one of the masterpieces of post-war British architecture. It was visited during construction by Le Corbusier, Walter Gropius, Marcel Breuer, Frank Lloyd Wright and others; and it duly received critical acclaim when opened. This monograph outlines the social background to its design in post-war welfare state Britain; discusses its acoustic design; and presents it as a fine example of the technology and detailing of the period. The illustrated essay, superb photographs, and a wealth of technical working details make this an invaluable resource for many types of reader - architects, engineers, acoustic designers, music lovers, 1950s and Festival of Britain enthusiasts, and ordinary lovers of the building itself. Now, in a new revised edition to mark the 50th anniversary of the building's inauguration, an additional chapter brings the story, in text and illustration, of the building's progress to date."--BOOK JACKET

The London County Council bomb damage maps, 1939-1945 by London County Council( )

2 editions published between 2015 and 2016 in English and held by 80 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The attack on London between 1939 and 1945 is one of the most significant events in the citys modern history, the impact of which can still be seen in its urban and social landscapes. As a key record of the attack, the London County Council Bomb Damage Maps represent destruction on a huge scale, recording buildings and streets reduced to smoke and rubble. The full set of maps is made up of 110 hand-coloured 1:2500 and each measuring approximately 75.5 x 106.5 cm. Ordnance Survey base sheets originally published in 1916 but updated by the LCC to 1940. Because they use the 1916 map, they give us a glimpse of a lost London, before post-war redevelopment schemes began to shape the modern city. The colouring applied to the maps records a scale of damage to Londons built environment during the war the most detailed and complete survey of destruction caused by the aerial bombardment. A clear and fascinating introduction by expert Laurence Ward sets the maps in the full historical context of the events that gave rise to them, supported by archival photographs and tables of often grim statistics

The planning of a new town by London County Council( )

6 editions published between 1961 and 2015 in English and held by 70 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The publication of 'The Planning of a New Town' in 1961 aroused remarkable interest. Its pages described a private new town, sponsored by the London County Council (LCC), to be built at Hook in Hampshire; a scheme that innovatively combined garden city/new town traditions with sensitivity to modern design. At its heart lay a multilevel and megastructural town centre intended to serve as a genuine focus for the gathering community, featuring shops and amenities placed on a pedestrian deck with cars and servicing beneath
