How did we lose the marketplace to the out-of-town shopping mall? When did the appearance of libraries and prisons become so important? What does the way we arrange our city centres say about us? Can architecture really make a difference to our quality of life? In this beautifully illustrated book, David Dimbleby tells the dramatic and heroic story of Britains architecture - the extraordinary buildings that define a nation and which grew out of the experiences and beliefs of the British people.

This fascinating account of a thousand years of change in Britains buildings tackles these questions and many more, and is filled with specially commissioned photographs and historic art.
