Description

London's Contemporary Architecture is a practical, visual and analytical guide to the best modern buildings in the British capital. Now in its fifth edition, the guide has been fully updated to cover the latest additions to the London skyline and buildings of architectural significance. Spanning the very best of London architecture, from London's world famous public buildings, theatres, shops to schools, hospitals and offices, the guide locates buildings by geographical area for ease of use and provides a physical and intellectual tour of London's most celebrated buildings. Following are new to this edition: more than 50 new buildings that are added, from the Saatchi Gallery and Zara on Oxford Street to Kew Herbarium and developments to the Young Vic; clear map-based format that allows navigation of the sites in London most worth visiting; and more than 150 buildings with full commentary. This is a superb full colour visual and analytical guide to the buildings of the capital. It is a tried and trusted guide to London's contemporary architecture from this successful and established author. It features a highly visual, full colour and portable format. The analysis of the importance and significance of buildings makes the book more than just a pictorial guide.
