The original title of the book: Eye: The Story Behind the London Eye

Sweeping one of the worlds most famous skylines at 135 metres in height, the London Eye is the largest observational wheel in the world, and provides a spectacular 30 minute flight over the capital. But if it had not been for the vision, commitment and sheer persistence of David Marks and Julia Barfield, the husband and wife team of architects behind the project, the London Eye might never have been built. Eye tells the various stories behind the conception, development, realisation and construction of the capitals newest landmark, including personal and political dramas, corporate conflicts, doubts, risks, obstacles and accidents. Against the backdrop of New Labours pre-millennium Britain, prominent public figures attacked and defended the project, there were unprecedented design and construction problems to overcome, and Marks and Barfield had to fight every inch of the way to maintain the integrity of their vision. This seminal moment in British architecture is celebrated through the dazzling photography of Marcus Robinson, insightful writing by The Guardian journalist Steve Rose, with an introduction by Richard Rogers and the clean and modern design of Neville Brodys Research Studios.

Purchasers can download a free scanned copy of the original book (without typos) from the publisher.Appraisers/reviewers will also find this book useful, as it outlines the organisational and individual obligations in promoting and recording the ongoing competence of mentors.Growing increasingly disdainful of Mark's platitudes, Leo publishes a withering takedown of his ideas online.The women themselves are partly to blame for this, for in order to be pious it made sense to disguise one's sex sometimes literally: Dr Cloke gives examples of those whose sex was discovered only after their death - they sought to become androgynous, a third sex before God.This study does not report actual sales data (which are simply unavailable, in a comparable or consistent manner in virtually all of the cities in India).Scholars believe, and we concur, that this work is important enough to be preserved, reproduced, and made generally available to the public.
