In particular, these architects are offering resistance against the rapid urbanization that has dominated the Chinese landscape. By responding to a local Chinese context, they have raised the avant-garde of China's architectural design practice in recent years.
The title of the book has multiple meanings for the featured architects. For some, “homecoming” is returning back to China after they have studied and lived abroad.

Описание: Spanning over 2000 years, from the great First Emperor, buried with his terracotta army in the 3rd Century BC, to the last emperor, enthroned in the Forbidden City in 1911, this book details the lives and personalities of all 157 Chinese emperors. Weathering centuries of violent change, the Cnese emperor remained at the centre of the largest political unit in the world, the Middle Kingdom. This extraordinary group of men - and one woman, Wu Zetian - had virtues and failings that were magnified by their exalted position. Some were villainous debauchees, or simply weak, leaving the control of the empire to their eunuchs, concubines or dowager empresses. Others were great warriors, literary scholars and painters. The book includes: biographical accounts of all 157 emperors of China, from Qin Shihuangdi, the great "First Emperor", to Puyi, the four-year-old last emperor; timeliness throughout with at-a-glance visual guides to the length and important events of each emperor's reign; datafiles for every emperor listing key information, such as name at birth and in Chinese calligraphic script, wives and concubines, manner of death and location of tomb; extensive quotations from contemporary sources; numerous sidebars and special features ranging from the Great Wall of China to the opium wars; and illustrations including portraits of the emperors, art treasures from imperial tombs and maps, detailing, for example, the Silk Roads and the maritime expeditions of the Ming Dynasty.
Описание: Reclusion - the act of disengaging from worldly affairs for spiritual and moral cleansing - was a concept deeply associated with the ancient Chinese civilization. The theme of reclusion, or yin, was especially prevalent during the late Ming and early Qing dynasties, a period of unrivalled artistic achievement. This beautifully illustrated exhibition catalogue invites the viewer deep into the world of 17th century China. Nearly 60 hanging and hand scrolls, albums, and fans - many never seen before in print - reveal how the educated elite expressed their thoughts and ideals through depictions of the landscape, birds, flowers, fish, and insects. Accompanied by penetrating essays on the subject, these works celebrate the extraordinary skill with which the period's artists communicated the simple pleasures of living with nature.
