Description

A highly visual account of the architecture and urban development of London by one the UK’s leading architects, Sir Terry Farrell.§In this wholly new and dynamic view of London, Farrell looks beyond the contribution of individual buildings to the city. He creates a larger, more exciting frame, charting how the capital’s messy and complex shape has been hewn out of a series of layers – natural and manmade. Illustrated with original sketches, maps, archive photographs and paintings, this book provides a vibrant and intriguing collage of London’s patterns and its history. Covers: The Thames and West London, Central London, Docklands and the Estuary; Tributaries; Canals; Railways; the London Underground; the natural landscape.
