Solutions for a Modern City: Arup in Beijing explores the major projects undertaken in Beijing by Arup, an influential firm of designers, engineers, planners and business consultants. Following Beijing's appointment as host city for the 2008 Olympic Games, Arup has had a significant influence on the astonishing architectural development occurring in Beijing and across China. With specially commissioned texts by Steve Rose, Dan Hewitt and Vesna Petresin Robert outlining the contemporary architectural scene in Beijing, technological innovations and broader historical context in which these developments are rooted, Solutions for a Modern City: Arup in Beijing provides a visually beautiful and informative insight into the built and cultural transformations currently underway in China.
