London is one of the worlds greatest cities, and its architecture is a unique heritage. The Tower of London is an urban castle unique in Europe, St Pauls is one of the worlds greatest domed cathedrals, and the squares and crescents of the West End inspired Haussmanns Paris.
In London, it is the variety of the streets, buildings, and parks that strikes the visitor. No king or government has ever set its mark here.Private ownership has shaped the city, and architects have served a wide variety of clients. Londons Classical era produced an elegant townscape between 1600 and 1830, but medieval, Tudor, and Victorian London were a potpourri of buildings large and small, each makingits own design statement.
In London: An Architectural History Anthony Sutcliffe takes the reader through two thousand years of architecture from the sublime to the mundane. With over 300 color illustrations the book is intended for the general reader and especially those visiting London for the first time.
