Description

Take a journey into a part of London that you never knew existed. Explore the city’s many Art Deco office buildings in a profusely illustrated two part ebook by award winning author Gregory Edwards. In amongst the great jumble of styles present in Central London you will find the Art Deco offices that were created between the two world wars when London rebuilt itself and expanded with bright new styles in all directions. Many of these buildings survived the blitz and can still be seen. Part 1 moves from the buildings on the riverside, once a major form of urban transport, through offices in Victoria, Mayfair, Soho, and Fitzrovia to the West End. In Part 2 the historical survey continues through the glory days of Fleet Street's newspaper business through to the financial district and beyond. In addition to this you will discover offices in recent years created here in a Post-Modernist style that recaptures and adds to the original Art Deco period of the twenties and thirties. There is also a chapter called 'Art Deco cemetery' about buildings that have fallen due to the pressure of progress, and mention of some that are still around but under threat from development.
