Chamberlin, Powell and Bon are known chiefly as the architects of the Barbican and nearby Golden Lane. This book is useful for including all their other projects and the many designs they submitted unsuccessfully to competitions. The biographical chapter is particularly interesting and sheds new light on the strengths of the three members of the team and the way they worked together. The book is well illustrated, including early student work and pictures of buildings since demolished as well as stunning recent photgraphy. I was disappointed to find quite a few errors in the areas I am familiar with and hope these can be corrected in a 2nd edition.
