Struggling under both local pressures and the rapid expansion of global economies, Asian cities are experiencing phenomenal growth that us putting increasing demands on architecture. The twenty-six original, illustrated essays in Anywise bridge the gap between East and West and between tradition and modernism while probing ideas and issues such as accommodation and transgression, and the shifting emphasis from quantity to quality in modern Asia.
Essays by Sandra Buckley, David Harvey, Fredric Jameson, Masao Miyoshi, and Saskia Sassen, among others, address the sex-trade in Tokyo, new cities in China, shopping in Hong Kong, and housing in Seoul. Projects by Arata Isozaki, Peter Eisenman, Rem Koolhaas, Tao Ho, William Lim, and others surround a special section on architecture and urban planning in Seoul.
Anywise is the fifth in a series of volumes sponsored by Anyone Corporation which investigate the condition of architecture at the end of the millennium.
