Architecture is the most visible external proof of Peking culture and the door is the most prominent and choice mark of architecture. Beijing has a rich store of door relics in different historical periods, from different social backgrounds, and of different artistic styles. In the 20th century, great political, economic, cultural, and urban pattern changes have caused unprecedented destruction and modification of traditional Chinese architecture. The author intends to preserve the valuable memories and histories of traditional Beijing architecture with precious photos. This book opens the door to the stories of Beijing doors.
