Architectural History

Ahrends, Burton and Koralek by Kenneth Powell is part of the English Heritage 20th Century Architects Series. Commissioned by English Heritage, RIBA Publishing and the Twentieth Century Society, this series aims to provide a full and engaging examination of some of Britains's most significant post-war architectural practices.

Ahrends, Burton and Koralek (ABK) was established in London in 1961 by three young AA graduates, Peter Ahrends, Richard Burton and Paul Koralek. By the 1970s, ABK was known as one of the most creative and versatile of Britain's younger practices, its workload ranging from college buildings in Oxford and Chichester to housing, public libraries, retail and industrial buildings.

Written by eminent architectural author and critic, Kenneth Powell, and lavishly illustrated with images from the practice's archive and stunning new photography, Ahrends, Burton and Koralek is an essential read for architects, students, architectural historians and anyone who is interested in learning more about a key practice in British post-war architecture.

  • The first major study of this prolific and versatile architectural practice
  • Essential reading for all those interested in High-Tech post-war architecture
  • Lavishly illustrated with images from the practice's archive and stunning new photography
