Creeping Plague of Ghastly Facadism, The ,

Author(s): The Gentle Author
ISBN13/Barcode: 9780995740167

"As if I were being poked repeatedly in the eye with a blunt stick, I cannot avoid becoming increasingly aware of a painfully cynical trend in London architecture which threatens to turn the city into the backlot of an abandoned movie studio."

The Gentle Author presents a humorous analysis of facadism - the unfortunate practice of destroying an old building apart from the front wall and constructing a new building behind it - revealing why it is happening and what it means.

As this bizarre architectural fad has spread across the capital, The Gentle Author has photographed the most notorious examples, collecting an astonishing gallery of images guaranteed to inspire both laughter and horror in equal measure.
