The architecture of the West is well-known and recognizable across the world. The architecture of Southeast Asia, which is inspired by environment and a thriving and distinct culture, is a hidden pearl in the world of architectural design. In New Directions in Tropical Asian Architecture, author Philip Goad explores a region and an architecture that is complex and thriving.

Featuring extended profiles of the regions most innovative and influential architects, this book covers a full complement of their recent projects in tropical Asia with plans, drawings, beautiful full-color photographs and insightful text. Inspired by fresh agendas, such as simplicity and rethinking congregational spaces, the designs in this book dazzle with a bold new perspective. The 400 color photographs in this book will put you in beach front scenes where the waves crash only inches from your feet; dreaming pool side at glamorous luxury hotels; relaxing in a gorgeous contemporary home; and finally, will bring you face to face with the most innovative architectural concepts in all of Asia.
