The New Asian Architecture: Vernacular Traditions and Contemporary Style
In Asia, contemporary buildings which draw on local cultural traditions are becoming a trend -- one in which the reconfiguration of indigenous design and the creation of hybrid forms reinvent tradition.
The rich cultural heritage in Southeast Asia has pushed forward the Asian trend of returning to one's roots, and this lavishly illustrated book showcases the outstanding examples of this contemporary architecture. Projects from nine Asian countries ranging from India to Japan are featured, including private residences and institutional buildings.
