famous architects ? Powell & Moya (Churchill Gardens), Eric Lyons (Chelsea), Erno Goldfinger (Trellick Tower); Darbourne & Darke (Vauxhall) .......

the whole New Towns movement (ignore Milton Keynes and look at a town like Harlow)

massive subject - and some fine architects, but you have to understand that many actually cared about the improvement that good housing could bring to people's lives.
