A new photography book has been curated with a focus on the architectural beauty of the often overlooked London council estates. The Council House is a curation of over 68 vibrant innovative council buildings and homes in London.

The photographs and words by Jack Young seeks to remind us that initial thought, pride and innovation went into the development of these buildings, and council housing is as much a part of the UK capital as Big Ben or Buckingham Palace.
