Presenting a wide ranging survey of current urban planning and architectural trends in Asia, this substantial catalogue highlights recent projects by more than 80 international architects, planners and artists (among them Arata Isozaki, Rem Koolhaas and Kiyonori Kikutake) whose works reflect innovative, often visionary approaches to the complex challenges of a rapidly expanding Asian urban landscape. Sixteen texts examining the economic, social, political and cultural contexts of contemporary Asian urbanism accompany pictorial documentation and descriptions of the featured projects, which range from realized commercial and institutional building complexes to an installation composed of debris from the Kobe earthquake and a documentary film depicting daily life in a high-rise apartment block in Singapore.
