Summary: London's Docklands are undergoing one of the biggest urban renewal programmes in the world. Over the last decade the London Docklands Development Corporation has overseen the often-controversial rebuilding of east London's run-down riverside areas - a process still some way from completion as the gigantic developments at Canary Wharf loom over the riverside. This revised edition of Stephanie Williams' book provides an invaluable critical guide to the significant buildings of Docklands, both old and new. It documents - with maps, plans and photographs - the monuments of high-pressure development, and provides visitors with both the historical context and a view of the future.
