China's Turn

China's Turn


China's Turn. The Architecture Observer 2016

Book ID: 100428

If past centuries belonged to Europe and much of the last century has been dominated by America, then now it is Chinas turn. For decades, the nation has experienced unprecedented economic growth, and it managed to evade the Wests economic recession. It has gained a significant economic presence in nearly every part of the world. Yet China is now in the midst of an economic slowdown, which impacts its architecture, urban planning, and infrastructure, both at home and abroad. Nanne de Ru and Hans Ibelings undertake a closer examination of this process, with reports from Canada, Portugal, Angola, South Africa, Indonesia, the United Kingdom, and Central and South America.
