Surprisingly good, yeah? Can you believe they design it today? Well, I can't too.
And looks like they really didn't. It's reconstruction of the building in original Yuan Ming Yuan in Beijing, burned in 1860.

I don't know if you're a troll but you miss the point.

Let's say farmhouses then.

Using the Forbidden City as an example to say that traditional chinese architecture is stylistically unsuited for office buildings is like citing the Colosseum to argue that traditional European architecture is unsuited for building farmhouses.

Happy?

Postmodernist: Beijing West Railway Station
Socialist: Great Hall of the People
Art Deco: Wuhan University
Postmodernist could be anything, Socialist was just the imposition of Stalinist architecture in China just as the West and Japan did during the colonial era, and Art Deco isn't a classical style but early modernism in my view.

The Xiyang Lou however appear to be great examples to prove me wrong, but it's too bad such an eclectic style wasn't ever used again.

Lastly, when you say "Western functionality," are you implying that functionality in architecture is somehow exclusive to the West? If so, then traditional Chinese architecture was somehow not "functional?" People everywhere built structures with the materials they had to in order to deal with their respective environments in the most efficient way possible. Perhaps no traditional architecture of any country is quite as "functional" as Modernist architecture, and for sure Modernism as an architectural movement originated in the West, relying on building techniques made available by industrialization. -But this does not mean that "functionality" in architecture is exclusively Western, which is what your statement seemed to imply.
No, but pure traditional Chinese architecture devoid of all Western influence which everyone accepts would be very limited in the type of use.

You missed the point entirely. I didn't cherry pick the Forbidden City as an example, rather erbse referenced it and I refuted.
