The opening of China to international trade and tourism has led to a sea change in the architecture seen in this country. The opportunities presented by China have attracted many big-name architects. As a result, the skyline has been remarkably transformed. This book surveys a number of these eye-catching projects for train stations, government buildings, theatres, stadiums and homes. In the introduction, the author also explores the very important issue of what the influx of foreign ideas and influence means for the future of traditional Chinese architectural principles and philosophies. Colour photographs are complemented by architectural drawings and plans.
