    Not only was it beautifully designed and lavishly illustrated, New Directions in Tropical Asian Architecture is now acknowledged as the standard reference book on its subject.

     

    New Directions in Tropical Asian Architecture reflects the excitement and dynamism of the emerging countries of the region. A sophisticated and globally aware generation of architects is redefining the design of private houses, public housing, public buildings and resort hotels.

     

    The pleasures and rewards of designing in some of the world’s most exotic locations are tempered by the realities of architectural responsibility in some of the world’s largest and most congested cities.

     

    New Directions in Tropical Asian Architecture features extended profiles of a selection of the region’s most interesting and influential architects. All their recent significant projects are fully documented with plans, drawings, colour photographs and extensive text.

     

    Introductory essays by Philip Goad and Anoma Pieris provide a balanced and analytical over view of the extremes of practice which oscillate throughout tropical Asia. Essays and project descriptions on each of eleven selected architectural practices are written by Philip Goad, Anoma Pieris and Amanda Achmadi.
