How to Read London: A Crash Course in London Architecture by Chris Rogers
How has London adapted through architecture and evolved from imperial city to a global city?
Over 2,000 years of settlement give London its unique architectural heritage. From Tudor to Victorian design statements, and the renewal of the city after the Great Fire of 1666, London's architecture has changed massively. Unlike Haussmann’s Paris, neither monarch nor politician imposed their will; private ownership and enterprise shaped the city and defined its parts.
Chris Rogers explores how London’s domestic, civic and commercial landscape has evolved and adapted throughout it's history.
