Overview

Chinese Brutalism Today: Concrete and Avant-Garde Architecture is divided into three chapters and ends with a methodological afterword that explains the reasons why the research was carried out and the scientific tools used. The first chapter is “Exposed concrete in the design process,” the second is “Identity Research: Towards an Ornate Surface” and the third is “Global ambition: towards a polished surface.” The narration takes place through a substantial written part accompanied by specific images that facilitate the understanding of the text. Transversally, in the narrative, an interpretation is given to the precise and ambiguous dictates announced in 2017 by President Xi Jinping: to pursue a contemporary architecture made of “international standards with Chinese characteristics.”
