The architectural renaissance of Britain's capital at the turn of the millennium has affected the design of everything front residential skyscrapers to corporate offices; from internationally important sports facilities to chic new boutiques; from imaginative new medical centres and libraries to striking riverside dwellings for students. This book, by renowned architecture writer Kenneth Powell, examines over 100 different projects that are reshaping modern London. Illustrated in full colour throughout are not just the headline-grabbing public works such as the British Airways London Eye, the new jubilee line stations, the Millennium Bridge and interventions at many of the national museums, but also a wide variety of smaller-scale projects that together offer a manifesto for radical change. With illustrations, plans and critical texts of the projects that are combining to reinvigorate London's urban landscape, "New London Architecture provides a detailed and authoritative portrait--indispensable to professionals and public alike--of a city vibrantly reinventing itself and avid to embrace the best of the new.
