About this book

ARCASIA, the Architects Regional Council Asia, is a council consisting of the Presidents of national institutes of architects in the Asian region that are members of the organization. The organization serves as an extension for each member institute's regional program and relations. This council meets annually to deliberate and to give collective direction and representation to matters that affect the architectural profession in the region. Established in 1979, its membership consists of 15 countries at present.

The idea of the book project had its inception as an ARCASIA City Directory project by the ARCASIA Council of Bali in 1987. By 1990 in Arga, the Council mandated KIRA(the Korea Institute of Registered Architects) and IAP to take over the project. However, it was not until the Council's 1991 decision in Beijing to confer a sole mandate to KIRA to undertake the project that things started to move. This book seems to testify that the deep-rooted culture bound responses to the similar infuluencing factors such as colonization, industrialization, and urbanization reveal the dynamic essence of architecture in the region of the ARCASIA countries.
