After 30 years in print, the most reliable single source of information on the city's buildings of all periods and styles
From Nash's elegant crescents to Lubetkin's uncompromising high-rise blocks, from Wren's churches to the Victorian Byzantine of Westminster Cathedral, from the Roman city wall to St. Pancras International, this updated guide offers a critical appraisal of London's architecture. More than 1,000 entries are all arranged chronologically within geographical sections, and clearly pinpointed on corresponding maps. Each section opens with a summary of the architectural and social history of the area, while a general introduction gives a concise century-by-century history of London's architecture from the time of the Roman occupation to the present. Clear and detailed time charts show the development of major trends and influences. Other special features include a series of plans outlining the development of the London squares from 1650 to 1900.
