Overview

Since the mid-1990s, when China allowed its architects to practice independently from government-run design institutes, a new kind of architecture, distinguished by unique regional characteristics, has emerged. China Dialogues is a rigorously selected collection of insightful interviews that the book’s author Vladimir Belogolovskyhas conducted with 21 leading Chinese architects during his extensive travels in China. At the time when so many buildings that are being built around the world are no longer rooted in their place and culture, the leading Chinese architects succeeded collectively in producing a unique architectural body of work that could not be confused with any other regional school. The interviews are accompanied by 190 photographs and drawings of beautifully executed projects built throughout China since the early 2000s. China Dialogues opens up the thinking process of the country’s top architects, as they share their ideas, insights, intentions, and visions in unusually revealing and candid ways.The book includes a foreword by photographer Iwan Baan, author’s introduction, and 21 interviews, including with Wang Shu of Amateur Studio, Yung Ho Chang of Atelier FCJZ, Xu Tiantian of DnA_Design and Architecture, Dong Gong of Vector Architects, Ma Yansong of MAD Architects, Li Xiaodong, Zhu Pei, Liu Jiakun, Atelier Deshaus, Li Hu of Open Architecture, Neri&Hu, Wang Hui of URBANUS, and Zhang Keof ZAO/standardarchitecture.
