Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0794604358, Hardcover)

Chinese style, long considered staid and traditional, is moving rapidly in a new and innovative direction. The pioneering spirit of a new China is manifesting itself in cuttingedge design and architecture as an insatiable appetite for creative new directions leads designers to infuse their work with a fresh vision. The traditional aesthetic values of elegance, subtlety and proportion are still evident, but modern materials and techniques now form the cornerstones of new design movements.

China Living presents a fascinating overview of China's diverse design landscape today. From modernist mountain villas to high-rise condominiums, and from artistic retreats in former industrial buildings to refurbished courtyard homes, the array of lifestyle and design options in China is as varied as the country itself. By unveiling the most exciting homes in Beijing, Shanghai and Hong Kong, three of the world's most dynamic cities. China Living exemplifies different facets of an emerging identity that is uniquely Chinese and yet has global appeal.
