Summary

The architecture of the West is well-known and recognizable across the world. The sustainable architecture of Southeast Asia—inspired by environment and a thriving and distinct culture—is a hidden pearl in the world of architectural design. In New Directions in Tropical Asian Architecture, author Philip Goad explores a region and a modern architecture that is complex and thriving.

Featuring extended profiles of the region's most innovative and influential architects, this book covers a full complement of their recent projects in tropical Asia with plans, drawings, beautiful full-color photographs and insightful text. Inspired by fresh agendas, such as simplicity and rethinking congregational spaces, the designs in this book dazzle with a bold new perspective. The 400 color photographs in this book will put you in beachfront scenes where the waves crash only inches from your feet; dreaming poolside at glamorous hotels; relaxing in gorgeous luxury homes with flawless Asian decor; and finally, will bring you face to face with the most innovative concepts in all of Asian architecture.
