Full Description
Modern architecture in China has until recently been dominated by Western influences. This is backed up by many major projects being awarded to international architects and that most Chinese practitioners have studied or worked abroad. Architects in China, a+u 16:03 depicts a new era where personal experiences and local context are incorporated into recent works. Private architectural practice is still a relatively new concept in China. Architects are still in the process of developing a design language that responds to the speed and size of the country's growth while respecting the local site. This issue features 20 projects that combine global and local into a new design form particular to China. Text in English and Japanese.
