Overview

From the opulence of Imperial China and rich drama of Chinoiserie to the pared-down classicism of the Ming dynasty, China is a wellspring of style inspiring a great deal of modern architecture and design.

From Beijing, Shanghai, and Hong Kong, each feature shows cutting edge, modern designs by trendsetting Chinese and China-based architects and designers who blend international perspective with traditional influences. Brand new bamboo villas next to the Great Wall of China illustrate the use of minimalist interiors. An opulently decorated restaurant in Hong Kong and renovated Siheyuans are a delight to any reader interested in global architecture and design.

Editorial Reviews

Library Journal
Inspiring color photographs of modernist architecture and interiors in the Tropics and China fill these idea books. Whereas in her previous book, China Style, Hong Kong-based interior design writer Leece showed interiors that drew inspiration from traditional Chinese domestic style, here she focuses on the modern design movement in China. Commercial and residential interiors are depicted in an uncluttered style that incorporates Chinese touches through the use of furniture and decorative accessories, along with a description of the owners' and inhabitants' design preferences. Barreneche, contributing editor to Metropolitan Home and Architectural Record, portrays modernist homes located between the Tropic of Cancer and Tropic of Capricorn. Individual homes are shown in color photographs, with floor plans accompanied by a description of the architects' approach to designing a modern home suited to tropical living throughout the world-including Australia, Brazil, Florida, and Mexico. Purchase where patrons are interested in modern architecture and design. Copyright 2003 Reed Business Information.
