9780140710922: London I: The City of London: The City of London v. 1 (The Buildings of England)

The City of London encompasses architecture of unsurpassed richness and variety. It boasts the Tower of London, the greatest of all English fortresses, as well as the largest Guildhall in the realm. The genius of Sir Christopher Wren is apparent in the form of St Paul's Cathedral, whilst Richard Roger's iconoclastic Lloyd's building is an example of the flamboyant statements of the twentieth-century. This guide unlocks the City's treasures, investigating its growth as well as its distinctivearchitectural character.

"The greatest endeavour of popular architectural scholarship in the world." -- Jonathan Meades, The Observer, 25th November 2001.
