The follow-up to the hugely popular All the Buildings in New York, this is a charmingly illustrated journey through London, one building at a time. All the Buildings in London is a love letter to London, told through James Gulliver Hancock’s unique and charming drawings of the city’s diverse architectural styles and streetscapes. Hancock’s offbeat drawing style gives a sense of whimsical and delightful fun to his illustrations, while perfectly capturing each building’s architectural details. This unusual combination of the artistic and the technical presents London’s cityscape like never before. The book includes such beloved iconic buildings as St. Paul’s Cathedral and Buckingham Palace; the latest modern landmarks, such as the Shard and the London Eye; celebrated cultural institutions, such as the British Museum and Tate Modern; and other notable attractions, such as Piccadilly Circus and Trafalgar Square, as well as the bridges and docks along the river Thames. Also featured are the everyday buildings that may not be famous but whose stylishness or eccentricity make up an important part of London and its architectural landscape. Londoners and tourists alike will savor this volume that uniquely celebrates the energy, spirit, and history of one of the greatest cities in the world.

London's 100 Most Extraordinary Buildings reveals the stories behind the capital's strangest and most enigmatic buildings. While some are open to the public--if you know who to ask--others are strictly off limits, which only heightens the sense of mystery around them. Still others are so familiar that few ever stop to consider how curious they actually are. South of the river, for example, the city's widest building at nearly 1,000 feet has been favorably compared to the Winter Palace. Elsewhere you can find an arts center built of old shipping containers, a Victorian explorer lying dead in a tent, acres of secret government underground offices, and even a private tunnel used for running cable cars under the Thames.

This report examines the events leading to the qualified audit opinion on the Equality and Human Rights Commission's 2006-08 accounts and on the continuing weaknesses in the Commission's controls. The Commission took up its new powers, and those of the former Commission for Racial Equality, the Disability Rights Commission and the Equal Opportunities Commission (the Legacy Commissions), on 1 October 2007. Serious errors were made in setting up the Commission, not helped by three changes of sponsor department in the months immediately before its launch. The Commission now accepts that it was not ready for business when the doors opened on 1 October 2007 and that its set-up process, which cost £39 million, was flawed and inefficient: it did not have in place sufficient senior staff, a transition strategy, business strategy, organisation design or job descriptions. Skills gaps were filled by bringing back former employees of the CRE as consultants, even though they had all received severance payments. The Treasury, which should have been consulted about these appointments, did not grant approval retrospectively as the Commission could not prove that the re-engagements gave good value for money. This expenditure was therefore deemed irregular and the Comptroller and Auditor General issued a qualified opinion on the Commission's 2006-08 accounts. This is not the way that the Public Accounts Committee expects public bodies to be run. Strong controls need to be in place to ensure that such errors do not recur.
