This book has explored how the Tongji University-based journal Time + Architecture has engaged with critical architecture within the Chinese architectural community, tracing a period of intellectual transition from the 1990s to the 2010s, addressing a range of topics such as architectural design, publication, criticism and exhibition. My investigation on the theme of criticality in contemporary Chinese architecture has consistently moved back and forth between two fundamentally significant areas: journal publication and critical architecture itself. The key component of this discussion, however, focused on the way in which the journal has endeavoured both to present and to produce critical discourses and projects within the Chinese architectural publishing scene.
