About This Item: 
The Asian continent today acts as a theatre to some of the most rapid changes in the urban environment ever to occur anywhere in the world. As cities--and economies--expand at an almost immeasurable pace, Asian architects face new challenges and opportunities. Through interviews, conversations, and visits to architecture studios across the continent, Instant Asia documents the most recent built projects of the emerging generation of designers shaping the architectural identity of Asia today. Includes an international cast of contributors--Taro Igarashi (an architectural critic and professor in Tokyo), Jiang Jun (an editor of Urban China magazine, Beijing), and Kayoko Ota (a curator in Rotterdam)--who focus on the heavily urbanized region of Southeast Asia to investigate novel forms of urbanism, offer a mix of theoretical perspective and present a panoramic view of the cultures, societies, and politics of Asian cities.
