Description

China remains as conspicuously absent from written histories of Modernism as Modernism does from written histories of China. Modernism in China confronts this by investigating China's unique experience of Modernism, its remarkable variety, striking contradictions and recurrent paradoxes. As occurred elsewhere in the world, Modernism in China acquired its own unique language forged from geographical, cultural, historical and political circumstances.

This book analyses the role of Modernism in the development of China's architectural and urban landscapes throughout the 20th century and consequently offers valuable context to the country's recent resurgence. It features new photography and previously unseen archive photography. It includes some intriguing examples of Art Deco and Modernist architecture and design. It is written by two young urban historians whose previous books on Shanghai and Asmara are gaining them a significant reputation in the field of architectural heritage.
