London Buildings free pdf This exquisite book, a design object in its own right, contains 45 stylish depictions of London's best buildings, created by influential design duo Robin Farquhar and Hannah Dipper of People Will Always Need Plates. These outstanding graphic illustrations, with their clean lines and bold blocks of colour, have been used by the company on a successful range of plates, mugs and other objects, but this is the first time they have appeared in book form. This long-awaited collection covers a range of architectural styles, from Sir Christopher Wren's 1675 Greenwich Royal Observatory to Richard Rogers' 2000 Montevetro development, taking in the glorious 19th-century Victoria and Albert Museum, 20s modernist masterpieces such as the Isokon Building and 1960s concrete Brutalist icons like the National Theatre. Buildings of all types are included, from art galleries to gas holders to tower blocks. The authors have included some of the images for which they are best known, such as those of the Trellick Tower and the Barbican, but the book also contains a selection of new images. Each is accompanied by succinct text that sums up why the authors love the buildings they depict. Includes a foreword by design expert Max Fraser.
