Gain insight into the world's hyper-modern design paradise with this stunning Chinese interior design book.
In this rapidly-changing nation, the pioneering spirit of a new China manifests itself in cutting-edge design and architecture. An insatiable appetite for creative new directions is leading interior designers to infuse their work with a fresh vision rooted in Chinese culture but totally of the moment. The traditional aesthetic values of elegance, subtlety and proportion and a deep-rooted sense of China's ancient culture and art are still evident—but modern materials and techniques now form the cornerstones of new design movements.
China Living Provides a fascinating overview of China's diverse design landscape today. From modernist mountain villas to high-rise condominiums, and from artistic retreats in former industrial buildings to refurbished courtyard homes—the array of lifestyles and design options in China are as varied as the country itself.
China Living unveils the most exciting homes in Beijing, Shanghai and Hongkong—three of the world's most dynamic cities. From Beijing's creative formalism to Shanghai's energetic glamour and Hongkong's latest high-tech and cultural fusion—all of the homes in this book exemplify different facets of an emerging identity that is uniquely Chinese and yet has global appeal.
