George 1st was actually from Germany, and was ‘invited’ to be king for political reasons, namely that those in power wanted a Protestant King, and not a return to the old Catholic ways. Politics and War During this period parliament…

City of London new buildings

We Londoners have a strange relationship with our skyscrapers. We make them our own: humanising them with cutesy and/or sarcastic names like ‘The Gherkin’ or ‘The Cheesegrater’. Even when they focus car-melting death rays, as ‘The Walkie-Talkie’ once did, we all have a good laugh. Maybe it s the novelty value. We don t have many tall buildings compared to most world cities. But that s about to change. According to a study carried out last year by independent forum New London Architecture, there are currently 263 buildings of twenty storeys or more…

Edwardian Architecture London

Modern or traditional? There are various issues to consider when choosing your home and what kind of space is most suitable for your needs. Older properties offer generous proportions, but if they have not been modernised can lack in facilities such as up to date central heating, double glazing and built-in storage. Modern properties, on the other hand, tend to be smaller, may have lower ceilings, which makes them easier to heat, but can make you feel cramped. Depending on the property, modern houses can be unique and have the latest technology…

London Architecture schools

Slapped wrists for any of you who describe yourselves as a software or web architect because the profession of “architect” is one of the few protected by law. While anyone can design a building (or an IT system), you must slog through seven years of training before you can use the job title without, in theory, being prosecuted. Students flock to London to study in the world’s creative capital and earn that status. Unfortunately, they are also flocking to architecture schools that are, unlike London’s fashion and fine art colleges, struggling to…
