Item description for Eye: The Story Behind the London Eye by Steve Rose & Marcus Robinson...

Sweeping one of the world's most famous skylines at 135 meters in height, the London Eye is the largest observational wheel in the world, and provides a spectacular 30 minute `flight' over England's 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, realization and construction of the capital's newest landmark, including personal and political dramas, corporate conflicts, doubts, risks, obstacles and accidents. Against the backdrop of New Labour's 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.
