The aesthetic regime of modernism and its relation to the project of modernisation was largely articulated under colonial conditions. At a time when empire was in decline, colonial modern governing strategies were firmly embedded in European architectural and urban projects. This volume reflects how the era of decolonisation had a lasting and unsettling effect on the practices and discourses of mass-housing.
