The commentary manages to be both informative and conversational, making it just as good a meander in an armchair as on the streets. (THE GOOD BOOK GUIDE)

Top Customer Reviews
Written as well-informed, insightful and witty essays, the entries read like an alternative architectural and social history of London and show the city as a collective endeavour over two thousand years.
As a now rare example of historically informed architectural criticism this book provides an antidote to the culture of amnesia in contemporary architecture (and this applies to the followers or protégés of the British crown prince as much as it does to Sub-Hi-Tech architects). Very readable and informing for the intelligent visitor; recommended to architects as an essential reminder that there is more to their discipline than mindless doodling and greed.
