Description

“This is at one level a book about a part of London and its buildings.

At another, it’s a book about learning to savour our lives” – Alain de BottonTake a walk around a park trodden by many but known by few.

From Lancaster House, venue of famous speeches and summits, to 100 Piccadilly, the stage of an ongoing Soviet-themed reality experience, The Buildings of Green Park captures the unseen history of these well-travelled streets. Green Park boasts a plethora of London landmarks, including Bridgewater House and the Canada Gates.

The Buildings of Green Park gives each of these sites the attention they deserve, while also celebrating a multitude of overlooked buildings: those that are passed every day without comment from the guides.

Local history, old photographs, paintings and floorplans offer a tantalising peek into the backstory behind these backdrops.

Moving through the winter and into the spring, Andrew Jones’s crisp photography captures a London shaped by past, present and hopes for the future.
