"Founded in 1946 by Sir Ove Nyquist Arup and with offices in 37 countries worldwide, Arup has become one of the most progressive creative forces behind many of today's most innovative designs in the built environment, including the Sydney Opera House, the Centre Pompidou in Paris, London's 'Gherkin' and Millennium Bridge and the Manchester Aquatic Centre." "Solutions for a Modern City: Arup in Beijing explores the major projects undertaken in Beijing by this influential firm of designers, engineers, planners and business consultants. With China's economic growth and rise in population, their holding of the Olympics and investment in the projects has had a significant impact on Beijing and the wider country as a whole. Following Beijing's appointment as host city for the 2008 Olympic Games, Arup has had a significant influence on the astonishing architectural development occurring in Beijing - and across China."--BOOK JACKET.
