- A comprehensive review of rural architecture in contemporary China
Beautiful Villages gives a comprehensive review of rural construction practices in contemporary China through a number of projects, such as the intervention of artists and art exhibitions, industrialisation efforts, and the creation of new social landscapes. In order to explore the social and historical significance of recent architectural work in rural areas, the book presents around 40 projects, most of which are the works of some of the most influential architects in China. The perspective of Beautiful Villages on rural development provides valuable insight for both government officials and architects alike.
