Britain's Post War Prefabs - Building the Post-War World
A lecture by Jane Hearn
Start: 5th April 2019 8:00pm
The Prefab Museum tells a story that resonates today and paints a picture of social, domestic, and working class life in Britain from 1946 to the present day. These prefabricated homes were designed to last 10-15 years when they were erected between 1946-1948 but thousands have survived, lived in and loved by their residents. Jane Hearn, co-director of the museum, will talk about the history and development of the post-war prefab, the architecture and designs, and the communities that lived - and still live - in them.
Jane Hearn is co-director of the Prefab Museum and a community development worker. Her interest in post-war prefabs dates back to 1990 when she first visited the Excalibur Estate of 187 prefabs, the last large group in London.
