London Buildings: An Architectural Tour book by Robin Farquhar and Hannah Dipper


They are the folk behind People Will Always Need Plates, a company we have featured regularly in the past. But soon, Robin Farquhar and Hannah Dipper will offer those distinctive designs in book form, courtesy of London Buildings: An Architectural Tour.

Published by Batsford, the book will offer 45 illustrations of London’s best buildings, from Sir Christopher Wren’s 1675 Greenwich Royal Observatory to Richard Rogers’ 2000 Montevetro development, taking in the 19th-century Victoria and Albert Museum, 20s modernist masterpieces such as the Isokon Building and concrete Brutalist icons like the National Theatre and Trellick Tower.

Throw in some all-new images produced just for the book and some words describing just why the authors love the buildings they depict and it should be a winner. Published in August, but available for pre-order now, the book is priced at  £8.99.
