From three architecture industry experts comes a book nearly as sophisticated as the luxury homes profiled within.

Inspired by new architectural agendas, such as rethinking congregational spaces and promoting a minimalist lifestyle, the luxury homes from across of Southeast Asia collected in this book dazzle with a bold new perspective on modern architecture. The 400 color photographs inside place you in beachfront scenes where the waves crash only inches from your feet; where you laze dreamily, jungle-side, in dazzling hotels; and finally, you come face to face with the most innovative concepts in all of Asia.

With an additional 200 architectural plans to further inspire modern architecture aficionados, New Directions in Tropical Asian Architecture presents breathtaking specimens from throughout Southeast Asia, including:
  • India
  • Indonesia
  • Malaysia
  • Singapore
  • Sri Lanka
  • Thailand
Let the luxury homes and residences in this book wow you, and open your eyes to a side of Southeast Asian architecture that you've never seen before.
