Beware the aspirational town planner with an unproven industrialised building system at their disposal. The problem of inadequate terraces with antiquated facilities is clear. The solution - colourless Lego-like modular flats with an emphasis on economies of scale - is far less so.

The building schemes featured are identified as Balloon Wood in Nottingham; Anchor Street in Leeds; Bransholme in Kingston Upon Hull; and Broomhall in Sheffield.
