about this item

This beautifully designed book showcases the extraordinary renaissance of London’s architecture in the 21st century. London has always been known for its iconic buildings, but the city has recently witnessed an explosion of new architecture from the world’s most acclaimed architects. This breathtaking volume offers a fascinating look at the city’s rapidly changing skyline and celebrates the enormous array of styles, materials, and cutting-edge technology that have been employed by today’s leading architects. The projects profiled here—brought to life by photographer Richard Schulman—range from dance and aquatic centers to world-class museums and global office headquarters. The book includes Rafael Viñoly’s "Walkie-Talkie" and "The Gherkin" by Foster + Partners, as well as Renzo Piano’s mixed-use skyscraper, "The Shard," across the Thames. Tucked into a medieval alley, OMA’s New Court Rothschild Bank nimbly juxtaposes contemporary features with more traditional ones. Meanwhile, alongside St. Paul’s Cathedral, Jean Nouvel’s One New Change cleverly plays off its storied environs with an ingeniously constructed glass block that allows for multiple views of the iconic church. From the Tate Modern extension to the Emirates Airline tram, and from the Peckham Library to the US Embassy building, no new stone is left unturned or unremarked upon. This book demonstrates how one of the world’s oldest cities manages to feel eternally new and exciting.
