Description

The ability for a city to provide the appropriate environment for modern business is an essential factor in maintaining its commercial edge. Since the mid-80s, London has succeeded in creating a sufficient
supply of new office space despite the vicissitudes of the marketplace. Its success in doing so has been due not only to substantial redevelopment in the traditional business areas but also to the emergence of new satellite developments which provide high quality Grade A working environments.

Of these, Canary Wharf was the first and reflected a novel approach to the organisation of London which eschewed the centralisation of business in the City and West End. This change is now being reflected in developments such as Paddington, Kings Cross, MORE London and Stratford City.

Although the growth of these satellites was a shift from the Victorian business model, it nevertheless reflects the historic arrangement of London as a city of villages.

The book will provide a comprehensive record of contemporary quality architecture and the workplace in London and covers each of the projects featured in the current New City Architecture Exhibition in London.


The book includes:

Forewords by Alderman Robert Finch, Lord Mayor of London and Honor Chapman, Chair of London Development Agency.

Additional contributions accompany important landmark developments including;
Frank Duffy, Founder DEGW and Andrew Rabeneck, Imperial College, London.
The Square Mile - Peter Murray, curator of New City Architecture Exhibition.
Canary Wharf- Nicola Jackson, former editor of World Architecture.
Paddington- David Taylor, former deputy editor of Architects Journal.
Victoria- Lee Mallett, former editor of Estates Times.
The South Bank- Kenneth Powell.
Regents Place- David Taylor.
Kings Cross- Lee Mallett.
Stratford City- Kenneth Powell.
