"Taiwan has a highly creative architecture, design and urban culture scene that so far has received little notice in international design publications. The new book in the Architecture Guides series by DOM publishers therefore highlights the architecture and urban culture of the "beautiful island". A fresh layout follows up the introductory essay with concise descriptions of 100 projects in three sections entitled "Classic", "Contemporary" and "Coming Soon". Helpful maps guarantee easy orientation while well-researched essays with lavish illustrations give insight into Taiwan's urban culture. The Taiwan Architecture Guide is published on the occasion of the 100th anniversary of the Republic of China. "
