Architects and Architecture of London is a visual, highly illustrated guide to London's greatest historic buildings and the lives of the architects who designed them. Read about the architectural forefathers of London, such as Inigo Jones and Sir Christopher Wren, Nicholas Hawksmoor, Robert Adam and John Nash, Butterfield and Street, Blomfield and Lutyens. Learn about those who, in the twentieth century, have helped to form the London we now know, right up to familiar names such as Rogers and Foster. And then there are the others who, in amongst the great and remembered architects, stand as the forgotten majority: talented architects such as Arthur Davis, who designed the Ritz hotel. In the constantly changing patterns of London's architecture, why do some buildings stand as testament to their architect(s), while others obscure their names from history? The book is organised by architect, to provide an easy point of reference for today's designers and students and all those interested in the architectural history of London. Architects and Architecture of London illuminates the city's two thousand year architectural history, through the lives and works of historic architects who remain salient and significant in London's contemporary architectural geography.What the press said about Ken Allinson's London's Contemporary Architecture: An Explorer's Guide:'Highly recommended . . . the book is crammed with maps and colour pictures with clear explanations about the design of the buildings.'Evening Standard'The perfect accompaniment to a walk around the capital.'Homes and Gardens* Links London's urban form to individual buildings to individual architects as 'local' heroes* Easy to use guide in clear map based format* Full colour throughout
