The Life of Rural People in Contemporary China
Mobo C. F. Gao
Gao Village Revisited is a close study of Gao village twenty years after the author, an anthropologist and native of Gao village, wrote his original ethnography Gao Village. With his sympathetic and insider’s approach, the author argues that rural Chinese display great entrepreneurship and inner strength of self-improvement; they are active contributors to China’s economic boom.
Signal. Image. Architecture. aims to clarify the status of computational images in contemporary architectural thought and practice by showing what happens if the technical basis of architecture is examined very closely. It is not a theory of architectural images, but rather a brief philosophical description of architecture after imaging.
