Interesting article on architecture in China. It suggests tailoring designs to the capabilities of the existing labor pool there, rather than produce schemes that could not easily be realized. Makes sense for wherever, right? "These projects are examples of quality design and construction in China for two reasons. First, the intended material applications are compatible with the available means for construction, and the construction techniques almost always offer dimensional tolerances that are forgiving of contractor variation." Some beautiful results. Now can it be done cost effectively, too?
