Photographs for a book called ‘The architecture of power’. It’s about the great fire of London in 1666 and the subsequent rebuilding (mostly in stone of course) of what is now the square mile of ‘The City of London’. An area of London with its own rules and one of the most important financial centres of the world. Nicholas Hawksmoor was the architect behind several new churches that were built, the design and placement of which is explored by Rob Shaw, the author of the book. It also explores the roots of power, the masons, architecture, the history of London and the relationship between the crown and the financial institutions of this country.
