For more than 30 years, the author has been dedicated to field surveys and mapping of Chinese ancient architecture, and has drawn tens of thousands of architectural manuscripts, ranging from primitive societies to the Ming and Qing dynasties, covering ancient architectures across China and depicting the structural principles as well as components and ornamentation of ancient buildings in detail. This book selects more than 2,500 of these works, including grand palaces and temples, residential houses that accommodate to local conditions, gardens with pavilions and water pavilions, or delicate arches, decorated brackets and eaves tiles, as well as exquisitely carved patterns on doors and windows, sunk panels, railings and balustrades. All of these demonstrate the superb skills of ancient Chinese architecture and allow people to appreciate the stunning spatial beauty of each ancient building. In particular, the book contains abundant ancient architectural patterns of Chinese dynasties and those of ethnic minorities, providing an important reference for later researchers to study the reproduction of antique architecture and ancient architectural decoration.
