Architect Pu Miao has long explored the localization of Modern Architecture in the context of China. As he has learned from his practice, the integration between architecture and landscape promises to be one of the main directions for the localization. This volume selects 15 architectural designs from Miao’s practice since the 1990s, 12 of them have been constructed and published in international and Chinese professional journals and books. The building types include restaurant, retail, exhibition, worship, residence, education, and public facilities. The works illustrate four modes to integrate buildings and landscape: outdoor spaces as alternative places for indoor activities, architecture and landscape each playing a unique role in a functional pair, architecture partially taking the form of landscape, and gardens as urban public spaces in a building. Through detailed analyses of design concepts, large amount of building photos, and drawings (including wall sections for some projects), this book brings readers not only virtual tours of the places, but also meticulous design documentation.
