Product Description

From the Inside Flap

Buildings by Chinese architect Wang Shu--this year's winner of the Pritzker Prize-- feature clear and simple contemporary designs that make use of traditional methods and materials. This book provides unique insights into the work of an architect who has hitherto received little attention in Europe, thereby addressing a considerable omission in the publishing world.

About the Author

WANG SHU was born in 1963 in the province of Xinjiang, China. He founded his architecture office Amateur Architecture Studio in 1997. In 2012, he was awarded the Pritzker Prize.

4.0 out of 5 stars very nice, a treasure 6 Feb. 2013
By Jordan Bissett - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
Light on text, heavy on full-scale sketches.

More explanations of each project would be helpful as the book leaves the reader to fill in the blanks and imagine the completed work. In the end, it's an imaginatively conceived and beautifully executed expose of a relatively mysterious Pritzker Prize-winning architect by the best publisher in the business.
5.0 out of 5 stars Beautiful book - Insightful Sketches - Innovative Binding 19 April 2015
By W. Stotler - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
Another Lars Müller Publishers masterpiece. Intricately bound, multiple page fold-out page spreads. The sketch work of Wang Shu is laid bare. This book should be of interest to any architect (or follower of architectural style) that wants to see raw work. Three- and four-page spreads fill this volume. It's a delight to see the architect's vision prior to digitization. The content is secondary to the presentation, which is beautiful: almost wabi-sabi.
4.0 out of 5 stars Sketch process 20 Nov. 2013
By Chan Vern Sheng - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
Great book that shows the raw hand sketches of a building project and the development of these drawings overtime. I do wish there was more photos of the building.
5.0 out of 5 stars most local best international architects. 27 Jan. 2014

Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
A typical sketch of the architect's basic book primarily consists of. Quietly busy and chaotic information in the book is the best you can think of.

3.0 out of 5 stars Extra handling cost was a surprise 11 April 2014
By ODCBOOK - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
Delivery of the book is ok but there were about 15€ extra transport taxes. This was rather annoying as the book was ordered for a student with limit budget
