    Overview

    An introduction to China’s current architectural scene Conversation with Pritzker Prize winner Wang Shu 20 fascinating projects by about 15 leading architects

    Aims and Scope

    In recent years, a refreshingly unconventional architectural scene – outside the mainstream – has established itself in China. Its representatives, many of whom were trained in the West, are known for their sensitive handling of space, light, and material, and by their engagement with context and their own tradition. Since Wang Shu, one of the most important representatives of the profession, won the Pritzker Prize, international professionals have become more aware of China’s new architecture. Twenty fascinating examples of different building typologies – many with social relevance – as well as an introductory essay illustrate current building activities and provide an insight into the cultural and architectonic influences.
