From the Back Cover:

Urban Flashes Asia is a bold conceptual and architectural response to the contemporary city. Supplanting recent Western accounts of urban developments, centred largely on European research, it introduces an emergent network of globally dispersed architects, theorists and urbanists. 

Working primarily, though not exclusively, out of Asia, the contributors of Urban Flashes Asia are a globally active body that is fast developing a rapidly evolving language of urban imagination and intervention. This is a new and intriguing version of events, which is wholly in step with the simultaneous and spontaneous nature of urban developments in Asia, as China and much of the surrounding region comes alive. It features an interview with the Japanese master Kazuo Shinohara and a Practice Profile of pioneering Chinese architect Yung Ho Chang.

Review:

“This publication widens debate by looking towards Asia, and ensuring that what is seen there, is not lost in translation” (Perspective Vol. 13 No. 5 September/ October 2004)
