Contemporary Architecture in China

Foreword by: Jin Lei / Translated by: Jiang Yajun
Contemporary Architecture in China features new architecture by focusing on 30 structures built since 1999. These buildings, located in ten different cities over a vast geographical area, cover a wide variety of types, from residential to commercial to public use.

While introducing details of construction—including date, location, use and technical information—the book also focuses on the aesthetic contribution these innovative buildings have made to China's urban landscape. The book's abundant images further enhance the reader's understanding of architectural styles and design features. Developments in construction and engineering as well as trends in architectural design can also be traced, giving readers a better understanding of todayAEs China and its dynamic architecture.
