China LivingeBook - 2012
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.
