The year 2000 was memorable for the completion of a series of major millennium projects, but the huge range of other schemes completed or announced during the past year or so confirms the position of London as the architectural capital of the world. The London Eye, the Great Court at the British Museum, Tate Modern, the Millennium Bridge, the Jubilee line extension, the Millennium Dome, and the extensions to or refurbishments of the National Portrait Gallery, Somerset House, the Barbican Centre, the Wallace Collection, and the Victoria and Albert Museum are just a few of the exciting architectural achievements that have grabbed the headlines; but the regeneration of the fabric of Britain's capital city is something that has also affected the design of houses, shops, and restaurants. New London Architecture offers a portrait of a city in the throes of a radical reinvention of itself, with critical texts, plans, and photographs of over one hundred of the projects -- both major and minor -- that are combining to reinvigorate the urban landscape.
