Tying in with the major BBC series, this is a full and gloriously colorful social history of the nation through its buildings. How did we get from the fortified tower to the grand open mansion and back again to the gated communities of today?How did we lose the marketplace to the out-of-town shopping mall? When did the appearance of libraries and prisons become so important? What does the way we arrange our city centers say about us? Can architecture really make a difference to our quality of life? In this beautifully illustrated book, David Dimbleby tells the dramatic and heroic story of Britain?s architecture?the extraordinary buildings that define a nation and which grew out of the experiences and beliefs of the British people. This fascinating account of a thousand years of change in Britain?s buildings tackles these questions and many more, and is filled with specially commissioned photographs and historic art.
