Item description for Asian Alterity: With Special Reference to Architectur + Urbanism Through the Lens of Cultural Studies / Case Studies of Asian Cities, Part II by William S. W. Lim, Andrew Lee, Leong Teng Wui, Linda Lim & Lim Teck Ghee...
Employing the multi-disciplinary cultural studies as a theoretical platform, this book presents a unique analysis of Asia's development and its architecture and urbanism. The concept of "multiple modernities" is extensively examined to provide the foundational understanding of Asian modernity today, which is firmly rooted in both its indigenous cultures and traditions as well as its contemporariness. This book, a new reflection on the nature of the city in Asia, and the role of professionals in the multiple modernities of those cities, includes: case studies of dynamic Asian cities such as Shanghai, Seoul, Melbourne and others; comments written by an internationally-assembled review panel; innovative and stylistic page layouts by a designer who is the Webby International Ambassador of Singapore; and a full color printing.
