Crowned looks at skylines and signature architecture of world cities. A vivid use of colour and form creates direct, bold images that accentuate the power and magnitude of these grand objects. They are portrayed as global beacons of beauty, ambition and extravagance - the jewellery through which cities present themselves as players on the world stage. This is an architecture of corporate and political power, with the new or re-made cities of the east reflecting the shifts of power and influence. 
Locations across the series so far include Shanghai, Beijing, Hong Kong, Dubai, Doha, Cairo, London and New York. Very different cities that have all used architecture to assert themselves.
