Illustrating London in all its complexity, this volume examines the extraordinary rang of buildings that has been developed across the whole spectrum of architectural styles, producing diversity and vigour within a strong historical framework. A section on the social and planning history of the metropolis includes essays by Andrew Saint, Robert Cowan, David Mackay and Cedric Price, while ′London as it is′ discusses the city following the boom period of the 1980′s, typified by Canary Wharf. Looking towards the future, there is a substantial examination of the capital′s transporation problems plus other key projects.

Synopsis:

First in the World Cities series, "London" provides an unrivalled insight into the city. It is divided into four main categories opening with "social and political background", where the history of the city is discussed with personal views on the environment and its effect. Andrew Saint, Robert Cowan, Cedric Price and David Mackay feature in this section with the proceedings of the symposium held at the Royal Academy of Arts on May 14th 1993. The second section which covers "London as it might have been", illustrates schemes which have been proposed for London over the last decade that will not be realized. The largest section of this book is "contemporary London", covering the gamut of buildings that exist within the city from private houses to social housing from bars and restaurants to large office developments. The range includes Broadgate, Canary Wharf, Quaglino's, Imagination Building and so on. The authors of these schemes range from large films to individual architects. And the final section "future London", includes projects yet to be realized but still on the drawing board and indicates the progress made by the city.

A positive and inspiring outlook for the city is revealed. The volume is completed by a series of maps which indicate where all the projects mentioned can be found. This book covers comprehensively the last decade of London's architectural projects, built and unbuilt, some published here for the first time. Reference maps pinpoint all the buildings discussed throughout the book. Together, the World Cities series should offer a fascinating library of urban development.
