Outrage (Slight Return)

Counter-Attack Against Subtopia
Ian Nairn
Architectural Press, London, 1957 

In this book, the follow-up to the polemical Outrage!, Nairn and pals look at solutions to problems in the urban environment. The layout was very progressive for 1957 and still looks great. Gordon Cullen provided illustrations and the photographic taxonomy anticipates the typologies of Bernd and Hilla Becher, who began their partnership soon after.
