The new book New Museums in China celebrates a golden era of museum building and cultural appreciation in the world’s most populous nation. Seizing the unique economic and creative opportunity, high-profile architecture firms and up-and-coming new designers are experimenting with form in dazzling ways. Exceptional, often cavernous architecture and smaller design gems are ushering in new physical, and with it mental, space for contemplating art.
Clare Jacobson, AIA Shanghai member and a Shanghai-based design writer and editor, is the author of this new book. Jacobson is a contributing editor to Architectural Record, and her articles have also appeared in Engineering News Record, Architectural Review Asia Pacific, Azure, Landscape Architecture, and other magazines. As editor and editorial director at Princeton Architectural Press for 21 years, she originated, acquired, and developed more than 120 books on architecture, graphic design, landscape architecture, photography, and visual culture.
