Description - London 3 by Bridget Cherry
This comprehensive architectural guide encompasses three centuries of metropolitan growth, spanning an area from Georgian St. Marylebone and the riverside terraces of Chelsea and Chiswick to Heathrow Airport and the outer fringes of Middlesex. Individual buildings to be explored range from homely medieval churches and farmhouses of once rural Middlesex villages to the stately Victorian cultural institutions which made South Kensington internationally famous. Country mansions of distinction - Burlington's Chiswick House, Soane's Pitshanger - still grace the outer areas, while from the last fifty years the varied and stimulating selection ranges from art deco factory and cinema to progressive social housing and the late-twentieth-century business park. A complete architectural guide to Brent, Ealing, Hammersmith & Fulham, Harrow, Hillingdon, Hounslow, Kensington & Chelsea, and Outer Westminster (St Marylebone and Paddington), this volume is fully illustrated with photographs, maps and plans.
