Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0847828689, Hardcover)

The People's Republic of China is currently the largest market for architectural services in the world, and its cities—sites of the greatest economic migration in modern history—are rapidly being transformed into rival centers for global trade and commerce. On the Edge: Ten Architects from China is an unprecedented critical anthology on new architecture in China, the first book of its kind devoted to the development and maturation of an indigenous approach to modern architecture and urbanism in China. Focusing on the work of ten young design firms based in mainland China, Hong Kong, and Taiwan, On the Edge documents the rise of a new aesthetic, the evolution of contemporary architectural practice, and the irresistible, global aspirations of an emerging avant-garde.Included in the book are completed buildings, proposed projects, and urban master plans by Gary Chang of Edge HK, Rocco Yim, Zi and Ming Zhang of Original Design Studio, Li Hu of Open Architecture Studio, Ai We Wei, Qingyun Ma of MADA, Jiakun Liu, and Yung Ho Chang, who is the present dean of the Architecture School at MIT
