Asian Design Destinations
Luxury resorts built on posts, a bar that looks like a UFO on the streets of Bangkok, and an underground museum. What do these places have in common? They are growing trends in architecture and design. Asian Design Destinations is an experience for the senses, transporting readers to some of the most fascinating places in the Middle East and the Far East. Is it art? Architecture? Style? Will it leave a permanent mark on our time? No one can say for sure today, but one thing is clear. It is all of that―electrifying, zany, exciting, bold, fairytale dreamy, and grandiose. These are places that visibly testify to the tremendous power of the symbiosis between nature and human genius. Architects, designers, and artists from all over the world combine the increasing demands and standards of a booming Asia with innovative materials and original ideas to create fascinating works.
