Pavilions of Splendour: An Architectural History of Lord's

Duff Hart-Davis
Methuen, 2004 - 189 σελίδες
This book is the history of the many splendid buildings that make up Lord's Ground, the home of cricket and the best-known ground in the world. The famous pavilion built in 1890 is recognised by cricket lovers everywhere. Equally striking and much more dramatic, is the ultra-modern Media Centre that towers above the Compton and Edrich stands. The Mound stand and the new Grandstand present a striking contrast between modern design and that of 25 years ago. In part a history of architecture, and in part an account of the development of Lord's since cricket was first played there early in the nineteenth century, this beautifully illustrated work will command the attention of all with an interest in cricket as well as students of architecture. Duff Hart-Davis has brought together a number of contributors and shaped a narrative that is at once interesting and informative.
