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.
Most Helpful Customer Reviews on Amazon.com (beta)
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.
