Item description for Asia Now: Architecture in Asia by David N. Buck...
Asia's recent economic explosion has resulted in an unprecedented building boom of some of the world's most innovative architecture. Organized by country, Asia Now is the first book of its kind to focus on buildings throughout the Asian continent. While it showcases prominent skyscrapers such as the Jin Mao Centre in Shanghai, the Nihonbashi 1-Chome Building in Tokyo, and the world's tallest building---the Petronas Towers in Malaysia---this volume also features extraordinary achievements in the design of retail stores, airports, restaurants, museums, churches and temples. The book is illustrated with full color photographs and offers detailed information about building plans and sites. Surveying buildings in six countries, and including more than 200 photographs, this comprehensive volume celebrates a rapidly developing region that is loudly proclaiming its status as the new architectural frontier.
