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.

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.
