Description

A magnificent coffee table book.

Well-known architecture and design commentator Stephen Bayley tells the story of the building of the link and its sensitive insertion into the rural and urban landscape, from the spectacular renaissance of St Pancras to the unearthing of significant archaeological remains along the route, and from the creation of bridges, viaducts and tunnels to the planting of wild-flower meadows. Lively and entertaining, and profusely illustrated with stunning photography – including archival images, dramatic construction shots and specially com missioned photographs – this fascinating book covers all aspects of the project, from design, planning and construction to the opening by Her Majesty The Queen and plans for the future. A fascinating record of a groundbreaking project, this book will appeal to all those interested in the railways and the built environment.
