London has always been known for its iconic buildings, but the city has recently witnessed an explosion of new architecture from the world's most acclaimed architects. This breathtaking volume offers a fascinating look at the city's rapidly changing skyline and celebrates the enormous array of motifs, materials, and cutting-edge technology that have been employed by today's leading architects. The book includes the recently completed Tate Modern extension by Herzog and de Meuron, important financial district buildings such as Rafael Vin oly's "Walkie-Talkie" and Foster + Partner's "The Gherkin," as well as Renzo Piano's mixed-use skyscraper, "The Shard," across the Thames. OMA's New Court Rothschild Bank nimbly juxtaposes contemporary features with more traditional ones. Jean Nouvel's colossal retail and office development, One New Change, cleverly plays off its storied environs with an ingeniously constructed glass block that allows for multiple views of St. Paul's Cathedral. From the Serpentine Sackler Gallery to the Emirates Airline tram, and from the Peckham Library to the US Embassy, no new stone is left unturned.This book demonstrates how one of the world's oldest cities manages to feel eternally new and exciting.
