Best Buildings - Britain

Best Buildings - Britain

By (author) Matthew Freedman


  • An elegant, practical, and easy-to-use guide for architecture fans
Full Description
Best Buildings Britain is the third title in the Best Buildings series, following Best Buildings Belgium (2018) and Best Buildings Holland (spring 2019). In this guide, Matthew Freedman presents 75 buildings completed after 1918 in Great Britain, each accompanied by a photo and a short text. The selection is based on the top ten lists of renowned British architects and architecture critics, including great names like Norman Foster, Piers Gough, Charles Holland, Jonathan Meades, Alice Rawsthorn and Richard Rogers. From their lists comes a surprising mix of 'best' buildings, from applauded contemporary projects such as the London Aquatics Centre, to impressive must-sees such as Highpoint in Highgate (London) or Marine Court in St Leonards-on-Sea, up to brutalist gems such as Preston bus station and the National Theatre. The book also features the full lists with all of each contributor's ten favourite buildings.
