New Architecture in the Emerging World chronicles eight critical years in the career of Andrew Bromberg, beginning in 2001 when he emigrated from Seattle to join Aedas Hong Kong, and running to 2009 when, as Aedas Executive Director of Design for the Middle East and Asia, Andrew designed dozens of phenomenal projects from Beirut to the Yellow Sea. New Architecture in the Emerging World traces the intertwined fortunes of Andrew, Aedas, and the Asian continent during the time when the world’s economic center-of-gravity appeared, at least for a while, to have permanently tilted towards the East. During this tumultuous and unprecedented era, Aedas grew to become one of the five largest architectural practices in the world, in part due to the firm’s significant presence in Hong Kong preceding the boom, and in part due to the furious energy and ambition that Andrew Bromberg brought to the firm, taking advantage of the explosion of economic and development activity throughout the Asian continent. The projects profiled in New Architecture in the Emerging World illustrate the extremely diverse range of projects that Andrew Bromberg has designed.
