Summary
"In the last decade of the twentieth century, China determined that Shanghai would be its engine of modernization and economic growth. Leading architects, including Norman Foster, Paul Andreu, Adrian Smith, John Portman, Chang Yung Ho, and Ma Qingyun, were lured to design vastly ambitious projects. Out of a creative ferment fueled by impatient aspirations, soaring buildings in a riot of styles sprang up - often before planners could even map their neighborhoods. Change touched every corner of Shanghai with staggering speed, from its famed waterfront, the Bund, to the distant outskirts." "Author Jay Pridmore sets the story of Shanghai's burgeoning growth against its complex history, taking in the tensions between European colonialism and Chinese nationalism, capitalism and communism, development and preservation. After surveying the city's traditional Chinese and colonial architecture, he examines modernism's advancement there and, backed by a wealth of superb photographs, illustrates Shanghai's metamorphosis into one of the most vibrant and significant "new" cities of the twenty-first century."--Jacket
