41 Modern Asian Architecture Designs

from Zen-Stone Shaped Art Centers to Tetis Buildings

— September 17, 2009 — Art & Design
Besides the artistic structures erected for the Beijing Olympics, modern Asian architecture doesn't get much time in the limelight -- but these marvels are not worth missing. This cluster highlights some of the most innovative modern Asian architecture from major cities including Taipei and Tokyo. The architectural designs range from grandiose and tall skyscrapers to artistic and zen-like performing arts centers.

Implications - The globalization of pop culture has enabled international design to be disseminated and enjoyed by design fans around the world. These designs highlight Asian architecture in all its iterations, from traditional designs to avant-garde skyscrapers. Creative professionals can take advantage of this opportunity by observing Asian countries' blend of contemporary and classic.
