Quiet architecture BOOK


Ranging from London townhouses to escapist farmhouses, ‘Quiet Architecture’ provides a comprehensive survey of Rabih Hage’s work. Illustrated through- out with photographs, drawings and sketches, Hage discusses his process and the development of each of the projects with author Dominic Bradbury. Rabih Hage defines his work in terms


of a ‘quiet architecture’, a philosophy that focuses upon the creative re-use and adaptation of existing buildings, recognising the importance of both sustainability and character within this ethos. His thoughtful and considered approach has brought a wide range of period houses and structures into the

A tale of six Chinese cities


“As late as 2008, the Chinese government was projecting an urbanisation rate of 50 per cent by 2040 but by the end of 2017 the National Bureau of Statistics of China reported that the rate had already hit 59 per cent.” As the authors of a new book acknowledge in their preface, it’s easy to be overwhelmed by these numbers, but they only tell a fragment of the story. ‘Chinese Urban Transformation: A Tale of Six Cities’, by RIBA Publishing and authors Alan Hudson, Dr. Chen Yuanzhi and Dr. He Lisheng, explores the dramatic development of China through six strikingly individual city case studies. The book covers the urbanisation process from the planned economy to the reform and its ripple effects, land property rights and the evolution of community governance, to finally investigating the new environmental agenda of China’s ‘Eco Cities.’ The six case studies encompass Shanghai, Nanchang, Qingdao, Hangzhou,


Chengdu and Hefei, as the complex dynamic between policy, outlook and the role that urban development plays in China’s view of itself is unravelled, including tensions resulting from rapid social and economic change. With the Chinese central government’s recent encouragement of its cities to achieve more balance between economic efficiency, social justice and environmental protection, priorities are again shifting alignment, making this book “the exciting and insightful first volume in a still transforming history of the world’s fastest transforming urban state”.


21st Century and carefully adapted them for modern living, as well as drawing deeply on the surrounding context for new build projects. Hage draws on a rich range of


architectural influences, from classicism to modernism, drawing out the individuality and personality of each and every space. Key to the success of Hage’s houses, apartments and hotels is the way his atelier combines architecture, interiors and furniture design within one holistic approach. The eye of a curator – informed by a rich personal heritage in the Lebanon, France and England – adds additional layers, with original and bespoke elements such as furniture, furnishings and art designed specifically and specially for the project in hand.
