Asia now: architecture in Asia

While it showcases prominent skyscrapers such as the Jin Mao Centre in Shanghai, the Nihonbashi 1-Chome Building in Tokyo, and the world?s tallest building--the Petronas Towers in Malaysia--this volume also features extraordinary achievements in the design of retail stores, airports, restaurants, museums, churches and temples. The book is illustrated with full color photographs and offers detailed information about building plans and sites. Surveying buildings in seven countries, and including more than 200 photographs, this comprehensive volume celebrates a rapidly developing region that is loudly proclaiming its status as the new architectural frontier.
