This third edition describes and illustrates more than 100 projects, from shops and bars to the mega-developments in the docklands. New entries are the first house built by Future Systems; community housing on the South Bank; and flamboyant inventions in Peckham High Street, an attempt to inject energy into a blighted inner-city area.

Review:

London: A Guide to Recent Architecture is one in a series of lovely little guides to many of the world's major cities created by British publisher Ellipsis. The information contained here ranges from brief perspectives on the city's architectural history to tips on which maps are best for visitors and how to navigate the local public transit system. The book considers architecture not as something that happens on isolated building sites, but rather as social, cultural, and political phenomena. At four inches square, this highly portable book is an ideal travel companion.

Some of the other books in the series cover Chicago, Las Vegas, Los Angeles, New York City, and Tokyo. Each guidebook has its own flavor, as different writers--usually architects--cover each city. --Loren E. Baldwin
