M8 IN CHINA
Contemporary Chinese Architects
M8 IN CHINA shows a surprising range of work by contemporary Chinese architects. This publication presents eight private, flexibly operating offices of a completely new generation of architects, whose works reveal some fascinating connections between tradition and the western avantgarde. Almost all the designs are characterised by great sensitivity towards regional and historical references, while simultaneously integrating traditional techniques of craftsmanship and modern know-how. Whether it is an artists’ residence demonstrating exciting interplay between volume and empty space and light and shadow, or a museum with a façade made of bamboo-clad concrete like a massive artificial cliff, or a teahouse at the foot of a mountain with a traditional wooden roof and regional slate walls; all twenty-four selected projects represent impressive evidence of the high quality of a new Chinese architectural language that has long established its approach within the global context.
The catalogue is published in line with the exhibition M8 IN CHINA, presented at the DAZ from 05.12.2009 until 21.02.2010.. With contributions of Peter Cachola Schmal, ZHI Wenjun, Eduard Kögel and Robert Ivy.

CITÁMBULOS – MEXICO CITY
Urban Transformation in the Mexican Megalopolis
Mexico City is one of the biggest urban conurbations in the world. This book invites readers on an astonishing journey through the everyday life of the city. Today, its citizens are called upon to demonstrate both spontaneity and creativity in order to deal with the city’s innumerable problems in times of growth and globalisation. But architects and town planners must also react to the challenge of the concentrated city with innovative and unusual strategies. This publication shows many urban phenomena that are not characteristic of Mexico City alone, but also provide ideas for discussion on the future of megacities all over the world. In this context, therefore, Citambulos collects the viewpoints of artists, urban planners and architects, creating an exciting overall picture of the megapolis Mexico City.

Berlin and Moscow.
Cultural Identity through Architecture
Architecture and urban planning reflect cultural identity and political upheaval. How will a new political system affect the urban space? How do they face architectural problems in Berlin and Moscow? Is there any interaction between East and West in the field of architecture? The Russian-German project archXchange addresses these questions on a practical and theoretical level.
The book shows the ambitious projects, results of a workshop held in Moscow, by the young architectural groups Ania Easty, blauraum, magma architecture, team05, Team Russia and trans-struktura-express. Comments of the renowned architects, city theorists and critics Eugene Asse, Bart Goldhoorn, Liudmila and Vlad Kirpichev, Irina Korobina, James McAdam, Lisa Schmitz, Werner Sewing, Jan Störmer and Sergei Tchoban broaden the spectrum of positions. archXchange offers a panorama of different perceptions of urban development in the East and West.
