As ever, the development of the city's economic, political and cultural life can be read in the new buildings going up all over the capital. After the excitement and farce of London's millennium buildings (The London Eye, Peckham Library and the Tate Modern on the one hand; the Dome and the infamous swaying Thames footbridge on the other), our rulers have built themselves one of the world's most lavish office blocks; two new skyscrapers are nearing completion at Canary Wharfonce among the capital's most derided properties, now an astonishingly desirable address; industrial buildings are renovated to house new-media firms and the people who own or work in them; and occasionally funding is found for a school or public leisure facility. This fifth edition of London: A Guide to Recent Architecture brings the picture up to date. 150 b/w photographs.

London theatre has long been held in high esteem by residents and visitors. But what of the spaces in which performances are staged? Theatre London gives audiences -- whether in the many art-deco palaces of the West End or old music hall spaces out east -- something to look at in the intervals, and points out the details and rich interiors which provide the atmosphere to make London the capital of theatre. In more than 70 entries the book charts the history of London's theatre architecture from the first purpose-built theatres in the Elizabethan period, which also saw the city's first theatre-building boom. The work of the later specialists -- including Frank Matcham, C J Phipps, Walter Emden and Bertie Crewe -- designers who could pack a large audience into often very tight sites, embellishing their work with riotous decoration, is well represented. In recent times an influx of public money from the Lottery on an unprecedented scale has produced disappointing results; no really good or innovative new theatres have yet emerged from this massive arts windfall. Theatre London also includes a series of short biographies, and a list of theatre buildings currently being used for other purposes.
