The Castles on the Ground by J M Richards was published by the London-based Architectural Press in 1946. In the 1930s, the new housing estates built on the outskirts of London were criticised by leading architects and intellectuals who viewed them as dull, uncultured developments. In this book, J M Richards wrote in defence of the suburbs.
