Item description for Solutions for a Modern City: Arup in Beijing by Terry Hill & Andrew Chan...
Solutions for a Modern City: Arup in Beijing explores many of the major projects undertaken in Beijing by this influential firm of designers, planners and business consultants. Founded in 1946 by Sir Ove Nyquist Arup, Arup has become one of the most progressive creative forces behind many of today's most innovative designs in the built environment. Following Beijing's appointment as host city for the 2008 Olympic Games, the firm has had a significant influence on the astonishing architectural growth occurring in Beijing and across China.
Solutions for a Modern City: Arup in Beijing takes a close look at Arup's collaborative involvement in some of the key venues for the 2008 Olympics: the National Stadium known as the "Bird's Nest"; the National Aquatics Centre known as the "Water Cube" and the National Convention Centre/Fencing Hall. The book also features an in-depth look at other iconic projects including China Central Television (CCTV) Headquarters; China World Trade Centre Phase 3; Beijing South Station and the Beijing Capital International Airport Terminal 3.
All projects featured are designed by teams of world-class architects and engineers, such as that forged between OMA and Arup in the design and realization of the CCTV Headquarters.
