'The Sustainable City' by Harriet Thorpe and Taran Wilkhu. 240pp, hardback, 196 x 255mm.
London is one of the world’s most sustainable cities. From pioneering timber high-rises to experimental flat-pack offices, this book celebrates the urban architecture that helps Londoners to live, work, play and share resources in a way that benefits not just the city, but our entire planet.
Harriet Thorpe is a journalist, writer and editor based in London. After cutting her teeth on the architecture desk at the world’s leading design magazine, Wallpaper*, she decided to tighten her focus to writing about sustainable architecture in her home city.
Taran Wilkhu is a British Indian lifestyle photographer specialising in interiors, architecture and portraits. He was born in Yorkshire, but currently resides in a timber-framed house designed by Walter Segal in south east London.
