Fallen Empire departs from two years of wandering through the ever-changing cityscape of London’s East End on the eve of the Olympics, an ephemeral limbo of destruction and reconstruction, debris nets, random encounters, nameless ruins, a city in the making while it holds its breath before a high dive.

The book is a behind the scenes look at the glamorous capital and its heart of darkness, that liminal space with no obvious landmarks shared by every modern metropolis.

 

“It is not only the codes — the map’s legend, the conventional signs of map-making and map-reading — 
that are liable to change, but also the objects represented, the lens through which they are viewed and the scale used.”

H. Lefebvre
