  • description

  • The book is devoted to the next generation of Chinese architects and their recent projects in China. It surveys a range of new tendencies in which Chinese architecture is finding a mature and distinct form. From the avant-garde experiments of MAD to the inventive recasting of vernacular traditions by Standardarchitecture, the projects collected in this book demonstrate the potent role that of post-Bejing Olympics China now plays in the shaping the cotemporary architectural arena. Authors Rodolphe el-Khoury and Zhao Pei hand-picked the projects for this survey with intent on covering the full range of experiment currently pursued by young firms in China. They present them within a broad historical context to frame the material and cultural dynamics that shape this architecture.
