Product description

Synopsis

An architectural guide that encompasses three centuries of metropolitan growth, spanning an area from Georgian St Marylebone and the riverside terraces of Chelsea and Chiswick to Heathrow Airport and the outer fringes of Middlesex. Individual buildings to be explored range from homely medieval churches and farmhouses of once rural Middlesex villages to the stately Victorian cultural institutions. Country mansions - Burlington's Chiswick House, Soane's Pitshanger - still grace the outer areas, while from the last 50 years the selection ranges from art deco factory and cinema to progressive social housing and the late 20th-century business park. This volume also contains introductory sections outlining the historical development of each borough, whilst a general introduction and over 100 photographs provide an architectural overview.
