From London's first pre-war tall buildings - the first to exceed the 30m limit set by the fire brigade were London Transport's Broadway headquarters and London University's Senate House - via Centrepoint to Canary Wharf, the Gherkin and beyond, this lively and provocative book chronicles the adventures and misadventures of architects, developers, politicians and the poor and usually neglected general public in London over the last seventy five years as they have struggled, planned and schemed to erect, or sometimes to prevent the erection, of ever taller buildings. Chronicling, detailing and illustrating over 120 tall buildings in London, this is an invaluable source book, a lively read, and an original and at times devastating critique of how we live and take decisions, and how we have lived and been ruled and overruled.
