Here in the Philippines, Chinese investors and businessman are so eager to demolish our heritage buildings, houses and edifice in European architecture and replace it with their "authentic Chinese architecture". I hate the idea because it seems that they want to deface our country which was hailed as Europe in Asia. China seems too envious with our unique Latin culture. Perhaps China just like to be called Europe in Asia instead. Too sad, our government is lazy enough (and greedy) to let these Chinese ruin our rich culture and history.

Sorry for asking such a question. But these buildings relate to the architecture of ancient China (Shang) or not?
Or is it all refers to the ancient Korea ( Choson) or Japan ( Yamato)?

They have the general look of Tang dynasty architecture, but are not necessarily faithful to a particular period or style. They are too generic and poorly detailed to be anything more specific.

Japanese and Korean architecture are heavily influenced by Tang architecture, so I think these game buildings are just supposed to have some general East Asian motifs.

So it's all the same style of ancient China of the Tang Dynasty?
Are you sure?
Then it turns out the developers just wanted to fool the world.
Apparently they were trying to pass off as the architecture of the Shang, Yamato and Choson- the architecture of the Tang Dynasty.
But I'm not surprised!
A palace and temple - style of ancient Japan (Yamato?)?

And where can I find information on the architecture ( Shang, Yamato and Choson)with the renovations?

Thanks for the links.

What kind of nation we leave these buildings? (Shang? Choson? Yamato? )

We decided to remake the game Age of Empire 1.

If all of these buildings will be transferred to the ancient China (Shang) , it is not considered an error?

And for civilization Yamato and Choson, we will do the other buildings?

Look man, Nobody knows what Shang architecture really looked like, probably something like the thatched buildings in your game icons but they are at best an educated guess. In real life, the Shang, Yamato, and Choson existed during very different time periods and building styles changed through time.

Besides, the Shang, Yamato, and Choson are not even the same categories of entities. The Shang was a Dynasty that ended 3000 years ago, Yamato is the name for an ethnic group first used during the 3rd century AD, and Choson is the name of a Korean Dynasty established in 1392. If you are going to make a game that sees the evolution of the Chinese, Japanese, and Korean civilizations from a primitive to an advanced state, it is not correct to use the titles Shang, Yamato, and Choson. When the game itself does not respect reality, how much realism can you expect from the building styles?

I had already told you what I thought the buildings you showed us looked like, that's all I can say because they are GENERIC GAME ICONS designed to approximate the look of early East Asian architecture, you can only expect a certain level of historical accuracy from them.

Compared with the level of historical accuracy in the other parts of the game design (like the names of the civilizations listed), I would say that the historical accuracy of the building models are the least of your concerns.

I hope this settles this question once and for all

Well that's too bad but what does that have to do with traditional Chinese architecture? If you want to talk about the race politics in the Philippines start your own thread instead of casting your vitriol here.

btw we Chinese have destroyed much more of our own heritage in our own country than you could even imagine. There's certainly no conspiracy to destroy your "unique Latin culture" on purpose believe me. Those businessmen want to make money and don't care about heritage, and neither do your politicians.

There's a lot of really beautiful examples of traditional Chinese architecture posted in this thread,
but to get away from the usual fare for a bit, here's some examples of the type of houses that most
Chinese people have been living in for the last couple millennia.












It's a shame these old mud-brick homes are falling into such disrepair, I think they could be quite beautiful if
they were properly renovated. If you look up 传统农房 (traditional farmhouse) on Baidu images (Chinese Google),
all you find is examples of rustic houses from Japan, Europe, Korea, anywhere but China. I think it shows that
Chinese people have simply not yet learned how to appreciate certain parts of their own heritage, these
farmhouses are still mainly associated with backwardness and poverty.

They say that there are no examples of Han dynasty architecture standing today, I would wager that
these traditional farmhouses are probably not very different from what farmhouses looked like during the Han.
Vernacular architecture like this always tends to be resilient to change. I hope we can start appreciating and
studying the various designs of these traditional farmhouses before they all disappear. (the houses they are
being replaced with, while modern, look absolutely atrocious)


Some pottery examples of Han dynasty architecture found in tombs:

There are many antiques in Chinese museums, also plenty in the British Museum, why not visit them!

These pottery antiques are collected from National Museum of China, located Beijing.
