London, England (United Kingdom) — perhaps the most globalised and most frequently visited city on Earth — is a reflection of thousands of years of human history. It is a mixture of hundreds of cultures from around the world jostling together with a unique energy that combines cooperation with competition as well as appreciation with apprehension.

London has long been a city in flux, but the last decade has brought particularly significant changes to its built environment. Historical stone and brick, Modernist concrete, and the latest glass daggers often now fight with one another for control of the city's streets and its skyline.
