Home > Book Center>The Civilization of Construction – Traditional Chinese Culture and Traditional Architecture (Revised Edition)


Ancient Chinese architecture is more than just a technology. It is an art and, even more, a comprehensive product of various cultural forms. This book selects eight aspects of traditional Chinese culture that are closely related to architecture, explains in vivid and easy-to-understand language the relationship between ancient Chinese architecture and politics, philosophy, religion, education, literature and art, lifestyle, folk culture, and regional culture, and analyzes various cultural phenomena in architecture, so as to reveal the cultural connotation and cultural background of architecture. This book has gone beyond the realm of architecture, and it aims to introduce the value of traditional architecture to the general public, enhance cultural confidence, and promote the protection and inheritance of cultural heritage.
