Five Hundred Buildings of Londonby Gill Davies
Synopses & Reviews
Five hundred stunning duotone photographs showcase the finest, most majestic, and interesting examples of architecture in one of the world's most beloved cities
The greatest buildings, monuments, and structures of London come to life in these inspiring, neighborhood-by-neighborhood photographic tours. Each building is featured in a rich, fine-resolution duotone photograph. Information including the building's name, its address and location, and year of completion or renovation is included underneath the image. A brief description of each building, which highlights its distinctive features and places it in historical context, is included at the back of the book.
Book News Annotation:
The 500 b&w photographs collected in this architecture guide are organized by postal code and captioned with the building's street, year of construction, and architect. Where the building has no formal name, the author invents one. Brief descriptions in the back of the book summarize each building's history. The buildings depicted in the medium-sized photographs are representative of what one would expect to find in any large European city. Originally published in 2006.
