Communicative living on a single level thanks to a wide variety of layouts, ingenious spatial solutions by playing with building structures, and the symbiosis of architecture and environment: The bungalow is the epitome of a self-determined life – and inspires builders and architects alike. The one or one-and-a-half-story type of detached single-family house today is resplendent with elegant monopitch roofs, flat-roof variants in the Bauhaus style, or classic gable-roof models. The contemporary projects presented show the entire range of functional and design possibilities. Each one is unique and has been individually developed according to its location and the wishes of the residents. What all the bungalows presented have in common is their architectural quality and their high quality of living.

China: the New Creative Power in Architecture
China: the New Creative Power in Architecture

The building culture of China is currently one of the most innovative and most adventurous in the world because of the bold ways architects approach materials and genres as well as forms and functions. At the same time, it offers the opportunity to implement the most daring designs in the shortest possible time, as both the expertise and the necessary manpower are available. While technology and tradition play an important role, so do sustainability and ecological concepts aiming at achieving a harmonious interplay between the respective building and its surroundings. This volume features a wide range of typologies, styles, and locations that have one thing in common – their architects come from China and make the world stop and take notice of their work. The author presents the most important and interesting contemporary offices and designers and their most significant projects at home and abroad.
