London, England is a historic city lined with thousands of buildings, some famous, and some hidden that hold great architectural significance -- a new app launched by the Architecture Foundation maps the location of all these buildings, bringing the city's iconic structures to life.

The app acts as an extension of a book written by architects Edward Jones and Christopher Woodward in 1983, which profiles 1,100 different buildings in the city, with a photograph and description. The new app digitizes this information, pinning the different locations on a user-friendly map.

The app makes for a more accessible and convenient way to sight-see in the city, providing a method to view the famous structures with more ease than old guide books can provide.
