Discovering London's Buildings: With Twelve Walks

Overview

"A celebration of London's architectural heritage through a selection of themes including houses, churches, railway stations and pubs, Discovering London's Buildings presents an original and easily accessible approach to understanding and exploring London's immensely diverse architecture." Because of its size and the number, complexity, and sheer variety of structures in the city - not unplanned, but without an overall plan - it is more difficult to gain an understanding of London's development as a whole than it is with many other world cities

Overview

"A celebration of London's architectural heritage through a selection of themes including houses, churches, railway stations and pubs, Discovering London's Buildings presents an original and easily accessible approach to understanding and exploring London's immensely diverse architecture." Because of its size and the number, complexity, and sheer variety of structures in the city - not unplanned, but without an overall plan - it is more difficult to gain an understanding of London's development as a whole than it is with many other world cities such as Rome, Paris or New York. London can no longer be encapsulated in a single view or narrated as a single story, so this book approaches it selectively and thematically, looking at elements of the architecture and services: domestic, commercial, religious and institutional.
