Description

London 2000+ portrays28 projects completed since the millennium, representing a broad range of design styles and scales. Prominent structures such as Sir Norman Foster's iconic "Gherkin," the London Eye by Marks Barfield, Daniel Libeskind's addition to the London Metropolitan University campus, and Herzog & de Meuron's Laban Dance Centre are featured alongside lesser-known buildings of merit by innovative, emerging designers to provide a superb representation of the many lively firms active in the city today.

Author Sam Lubell also features projects that illustrate creative examples of adaptive reuse and renovation in compact urban quartersincluding a library that incorporates outdoor gathering spaces to revitalise a formerly depressed neighborhood, a primary school that insulates students from street noise while providing rooftop play space, a Victorian train maintenance station reconfigured as a popular performing arts venue, a vibrant modern addition to an Edwardian townhouse, and elevated footbridges that facilitate pedestrian traffic in the city's congested centre.
