New Designs for Asia

Asia's remarkable economic and political growth has led some to believe that future historians will be calling the twenty-first century the 'Asian Century'. One of the most important factors fuelling growth is the region's rapid urbanization. Urban Studies and Architecture are important disciplines for anyone interested in trying to pragmatically direct this growth, and help to improve people's lives. In the focus section of this issue , guest editors Gregory Bracken and Bart Kuijpers present 'New Designs for Asia' - student work from the Architecture Faculty, TU Delft, the Netherlands.
