Crowned looks at skylines and signature architecture of world cities. A vivid use of colour and form accentuates their power and magnitude as both symbols and grand objects.
They are portrayed as global beacons of beauty, ambition and extravagance, the jewellery through which world cities assert themselves. This is architecture that represents corporate, consumer led capitalism, with the new or re-made cities of the east reflecting the shifts of power and influence.
Locations include Shanghai, Beijing, Hong Kong, Dubai, Doha, London and New York. Very different cities that have all extensively used architecture to assert themselves.
