Publisher's description: Classical details combined with clean lines and artful form brings the art in architecture, merging tradition with contemporary design concepts. Proportion, scale, and composition are key concepts in architectural design. Through massing studies and mathematical calculations, including the Golden Ratio, the architecture and decorative details seen in this highly illustrated book seamlessly join discipline and functionality with artistry. Rigorous studies and detailed, full-color conceptual sketches and rich photographic detail bring each project to life, capturing the overall essence of the design. In the pages of this impressive volume, the second in a superb series, you will see project examples of classical Chinese architecture translated into the 21st century. Projects range from residential spaces to palace gates and entries; from boutique resorts and hotels to business and convention centers; from public to commercial enterprises. The arrival of digital age in architecture not long ago gave the architects and designers the tools to push the envelope in designs much further every time - whether it s traditional, modern, or contemporary.
