Lukáš Novotný: Modern London

An illustrated cityscape from the 1920s to the present day by Lukas Novotny ***

From the art deco factories of the 1920s through to the skyscraper boom of the twenty-first century, Modern London takes you on an illustrated tour of the capital’s ever-changing landscape. Shaped variously by war, economics, population growth and design trends, the city has been moulded by some of the greatest modern architects and to this day remains a centre of building design and experimentation. Through intricate graphic illustrations and accessible entertaining text, London’s streets, structures and transport systems of the last century are brought to life.

Discover long lost treasures such as the Firestone Factory and marvel at modern–day masterpieces like the London Aquatics centre; delight in previously vilified social housing projects such as the Balfron Tower, and discover the drama behind bold, eccentric designs like the ‘Cheesegrater’. The city’s skyline can change in an instant; Modern London invites you to sit back and survey the scene so far. Lukas Novotny is a freelance illustrator and designer, who specialises in art direction, branding and paper engineering. He has a background in Civil Engineering and Architecture. Lukas lives in London. Take a look at his work at lukasnovo.com and his Instagram @lukas.novo.
