New Zero Books publication by Bartlett School of Architecture graduate Emma M. Jones.

With original stories from London’s archives, Parched City is an architectural, environmental and social history tale of London’s drinking water. Sifting through the archives, Jones reveals the micro-stories of London. Environmentalists, water industry professionals and designers are brought together in the book’s coverage of recent history, and investigate critical questions of water access, ownership and quality.
