New Chinese Architecture: Twenty Women Building the Future
Austin Williams and Zhang Xin
This celebration of 20 of China’s latest generation features detailed profiles of each architect, exploring their routes to success, their inspirations and the challenges posed for those working and designing in this richly diverse and rapidly evolving region. Each profile is followed by a selection of recent works, including everything from small-scale conceptual plans to country houses, schools, offices and large-scale city development projects. From exploring new ways to build with radical, sustainable materials to sensitively honouring the vernacular traditions of the country’s complex history, each architect brings their unique vision to the question of what architecture means in China today.
