This book was the first to document the extraordinary Chinese construction boom, which began in the 1990s.
Conceived by Patrick Bingham-Hall, and wonderfully written by Xing Ruan, it can thus be regarded as a historical achievement... a milestone in architectural publishing.
New China Architecture seized a moment in time. It documents the stunning designs of famed international architects and the emergence of local Chinese architecture.
The selected projects cover a broad range… skyscrapers in Shanghai, public buildings in Beijing and Guangzhou, innovative private houses such as those at the Commune by the Great Wall, as well as gleaming new airports, theatres and university buildings throughout China.
Renowned international architects whose projects are featured in the book include Norman Foster, Paul Andreu, Riken Yamamoto, Steven Holl, Rem Koolhaas and OMA, Zaha Hadid, PTW, Skidmore Owings and Merrill, Arata Isozaki and Pei Cobb Freed.
Local Chinese architects include Liu Jiakun, Yung Ho Chang, MADA spam, Cui Kai and Zhu Pei.
