Book Launch for Professor Peter Rowe
Emergent Architectural Territories in East Asian Cities
Peter G. Rowe with drawings by Michael Sypkens
This book maps and describes the large development areas in big cities in China, Japan, Singapore, South Korea and Taiwan, as they are striking out into new territories. Combining a typology of public architecture with an account of the composition of urban elements, the author establishes a much-needed link between urban planning issues and the architectural agenda.
