Building small guesthouses and hotels is an mportant task for China’s new generation f architects. Many of these buildings are characterised by unconventional designs and a sensitive use of materials. Their architecture often makes references to the local contextand cultural tradition. This book presents 20 exceptional guesthouses and hotels that have opened in China in recent years. A good number of them have been built in the countryside in an effort to improve living conditions there by encouraging sensitive tourism and to slow the rate of rural flight. The book reveals what distinguishes these places for an overnight stay.
