new builds, Xian



new build Beijing



motifs





the ones more popular to build are the traditional styles that dont have many curves, with parts more easily made in the factories, but still more
expensive with the glazed tiles and woodwork:









And there are of course a gazillion new McMansions going up so beloved by a developing country's nouveau riches, at first in southern European styles
akin to US tastes, but now Western European too (French especially):




and novelty copies of new towns in places with no colonial legacy but looking to make instant tourist/ investor bucks





Places like Shanghai, Guangzhou and Tianjin it's more allowable due to being Treaty Ports - some places such as Qingdao, Dalian and Harbin actually
operate a traditional Chinese architecture ban for areas to 'preserve' the colonial centre.







mix of Chinese and British style in Shanghai's shikumen housing




new builds to 'blend in':







But there is hope yet, Wang Shu who won last year's Pritzker Prize uses traditional motifs and materials throughout his buildings:
