New Horizons: Eight Perspectives on Chinese Landscape Architecture
Publisher: Birkhauser, Editor: Jutta Kehrer, ISBN: 9783035621457, Format: Hardcover, 270 x 200mm, 280pp
A new generation of Chinese landscape architects, hardly registered outside China, is emerging: innovative, optimistic, radical, yet rooted in local context and tradition. Thanks to their international experience they seamlessly combine eastern and western influences to create something new.
This title is a first look at this generation: an external view provided by expert essays is followed by detailed and richly-illustrated profiles of eight successful studios including interviews with founders.
