The book features the outstanding works of eight well-known Chinese architectural studios based in Beijing. They are URBANUS, Atelier Deshaus, Studio Pei-Zhu, standardarchitecture, Trace Architecture Office (TAO), Vector Architects, OPEN Architecture and Design and Architecture (DnA). Most of the principals and chief architects in these studios have either studied in America or worked in the American architectural sector and are now practicing back in China with an international vision and have established their own studios. They keep on seeking unique architectural expressions, navigating through the two countries of different urban reality and working environment with an identical architectural ideal and design attitude. The projects selected in this book are mainly small-scale public buildings, such as hotels, libraries, visitor centers, terminals, schools, galleries and museums. Some residence projects are also included; for example, courtyard houses in Beijing.
