M8 in China shows a surprising range of work by contemporary Chinese architects. This publication presents eight private, flexibly operating offices of a completely new generation, whose works reveal some fascinating connections between tradition and the western avantgarde. Almost all the designs are characterised by great sensitivity towards regional and historical references, while simultaneously integrating traditional techniques of craftsmanship and modern know-how. Whether it is an artists’ hostel demonstrating exciting interplay between volume and empty space and light and shadow, or a museum with a facade made of bamboo-clad concrete like a massive artificial cliff, or a tea-house at the foot of a mountain with a traditional wooden roof and regional slate walls; all 24 selected projects represent impressive evidence of the high quality of a new Chinese architectural language that has long established its approach within the global context.
