When people think about architecture in China, then it is usually the overpowering presence of Western masters conjuring up entire large cities that spring to mind. Be that as it may, Chinese architecture is also undergoing a massive upsurge. This book presents selected projects of eight young architectural bureaus from the Middle Empire, all of which hold their own very well alongside the large foreign firms and are making their very own contribution to the creation of a modern China. Furthermore the volume contains a selection of projects of German architectural bureaus which have successfully risked taking the step in the direction of the East.

Given the unprecedented opportunities that architects have been given to build in China since the turn of the century, it is surprising that we should focus on a modest middle school in the suburbs of Beijing Yet, as Austin Williams explains, the Chinese firm Atelier Fronti have tried with Baiziwan Middle School to make architecture relevant in a process which has very little regard for it. The Greatest Buildings of the 21st Century series is not simply an attempt to celebrate the best in contemporary architecture although it is very much that. It is also a platform for architectural critics to explore in depth their craft through a building they admire. It asks one obvious question, "what is a great building?"but poses another more a complex one: "how should architecture be judged?"

In an era of accelerating population growth, mass urbanisation, and increasing pressure on the natural environment, the megacities of China's eastern seaboard have become a focal point of architectural and urban-design attention. The “reform and opening-up era” has touched China's major cities in different ways, affecting the existing fabric of dynastic capitals, trade hubs, and former European colonies and concessions; this in turn has provided the setting for a range of complex reactions by contemporary architects. The Architectural Guide China provides city-by-city coverage including historic maps and background information on urban form. Building on the authors' years of experience leading architectural study tours, this book is the first comprehensive English-language survey of recent Chinese architecture presented in the form of a travel guide.

This book provides a comprehensive, critical overview of the developments in architecture from 1960 to 2010. The first section provides a presentation of major movements in architecture after 1960, and the second, a geographic survey that covers a wide range of territories around the world. This book not only reflects the different perspectives of its various authors, but also charts a middle course between the 'aesthetic' histories that examine architecture solely in terms of its formal aspects, and the more 'ideological' histories that subject it to a critique that often skirts the discussion of its formal aspects.
