Sir Frederick Gibberd: picture history of the designer of BISF homes  


The architects firm established by Sir Frederick Gibberd is still in business and has a nice picture history of his achievements, including BISF homes. Worth a look if you haven't seen it.


Hello Oxford John, thank you for sharing the link.

I recall visiting the Gibberd website several years ago but at the time there wasn't much information available on the site. It looks to have been updated now and I was particularly drawn to the following quote:

I was not aware of the commission of 1500 private sector versions of the BISF house and I would be very interested to find out more about these properties. I would be particularly interested in any design changes or variations that may have been made.

I'm going to have a good look through the site later today and wanted to thank you for sharing this information. I do have quite a large collection of material on Sir Frederick Gibberd which I hope to share in due course.

Below is a video of Sir Gibberd talking about Harlow New Town.
