Book Review: Chinese Megastructures

By Michael Webb 

Urban Hopes: Made in China by Steven Holl. Edited by Christoph a. Kumpusch (Lars Müller Publishers, $49)

In the 19th century, “Go west, young man” was an invitation to settle the prairies or prospect for gold in Colorado and California. Now, architects fly to China to realize their dreams on a scale and at a speed that’s unimaginable  in the West of today. Few have achieved more spectacular success than Steven Holl. When I was in Beijing in 2008, his Linked Hybrid was a construction site; now those towers have been matched by Sliced Porosity in Chengdu and Horizontal Skyscraper in Shenzen. To come are a pair of new museums near Tianjin, and a porous city within the fast-growing city of Dongguan, a neighbor of Shenzen.  All five of these vast projects are explored in a masterpiece of miniaturization that is elegantly produced and fairly priced for a book of this quality.

Image courtesy of the MAK Center.A noteworthy group of architects and artists has contributed to the Light My Way, Stranger auction—a fundraiser to benefit the MAK Center for Art and Architecture at the Schindler House. The auction, which will offer for sale unique light fixtures designed by a veritable “who’s who” of local architects and artists, will be held on Nov. 2 as the MAK Center’s first Day of the Dead auction. Proceeds will support the Schindler House (1922), the Mackey Apartments (1939), and the Fitzpatrick-Leland House (1936)—all designed by R.M. Schindler. 

The list of architects contributing to Light My Way, Stranger includes, but is not limited to, Atelier Hitoshi Abe, Ball-Nogues Studio, Bestor Architecture, Erlich Architects, Hodgetts & Fung Design, Francois Perrin, P-A-T-T-E-R-N-S, and Mark Mack Architects. The fixtures vary from futuristic to warm to (dare we say) theatrical.

Visit the Light My Way, Stranger website to see more fixture designs and for more information on tickets to the auction.
