A complete guide to the London Eye, this book looks at the story behind its design and construction, ranging from the birth of the idea over the architects' kitchen table, to the modified, finished design, the construction of each component and the final dramatic lifting. Examining "the Eye" in context, this book also looks at how it has transformed the London skyline. Photography of and from the wheel reveal how it has brought a new dimension to London, enabling a different perspective on the city, and how the Eye itself has become a popular landmark. Double-page panoramic photographs recreate views from the top, while interesting narrative provides some enlightening facts about many of the landmarks that Londoners now take for granted.
