9780091943622: Open House London: An Exclusive Glimpse Inside 100 of the Most Extraordinary Buildings in London

This is the first book to tie in with Open House London, the must-see event of the London calendar that showcases 100 of the most inspiringly designed buildings in the capital city. Every year for one weekend in September, hundreds of buildings in London—some historical, some modern, but all of great architectural interest—open their doors to the general public for free. In the Open House London book, the reader can enjoy the same exclusive glimpse into 100 of the buildings that have taken part in the event. Well-known buildings rub shoulders with the less famous, but no less architecturally intriguing from Lloyds of London and the Imagination building to Trellick Tower and Ed's Shed, the Royal Festival Hall and Wilton's Music Hall as well as the history of each edifice. The architectural considerations behind them are revealed and architects and owners offer their thoughts and reflections on some of these incredible designs.
