9780007149704: The Essential Eye: British Airways London Eye

The Essential Eye is the official book of London's favourite new landmark – 'the largest observation wheel in the world' – and is the perfect souvenir of a great city and an incredible feat of engineering.

A complete guide to the London Eye, this book looks at the story behind its design and construction. From the birth of the idea over the architects' kitchen table, to the modified, finished design, the construction of each component and the final dramatic lifting.

Examining the Eye in context, this book also looks at how it has transformed the London skyline. Beautiful photography of and from the wheel reveal how it has brought a new dimension to London, enabling a different perspective on the city, and how the Eye itself has become a popular landmark. Double-page panoramic photos recreate views from the top, while interesting narrative provides some enlightening facts about many of the landmarks that Londoners now take for granted.

Featuring a foreword by the architects, stunning photography, and easy access facts and figures, The Essential Eye is a book for tourists, Londoners, engineers, architects – and anybody who has ever looked at the structure in wonderment.
