Synopsis: From the entrepreneurial spirit of individual designers to the global ambitions of a nation, China Design Now explores how China?s new design culture began, how it is developing, and where it is going.
Within the framework of three cities— Shenzhen, Shanghai, and Beijing—a broad range of topics is covered, including new media, fashion, architecture, and urban planning. This book is being published for a headline exhibition at the Victoria and Albert Museum, which coincides with the Beijing 2008 Olympics.
