This title presents the home-grown talent shaping this new aesthetic bound by the surrounding environment.After two decades of wild experimentation China has found its own unique architectural language that bridges millennia of traditions with a promising future and looks nothing short of amazing. Adopting new methods and techniques, they are pushing design possibilities and influencing the watching world. From cultural institutions to cityscapes, explore the tantalising world of Chinese architecture and get a window into the world of tomorrow.
