Found a great documentary on Traditional Chinese architecture. In Chinese though, but it is very well researched and extremely informative.


Beginnings of Chinese architecture and Han Style



Tang Style



Song-Ming Style



Technical Aspects of Traditional Chinese architecture



Traditional City planning, and overview of Forbidden City


Traditional Courtyards houses, and houses for common folks


Traditional Temple and Garden design



Making of Liang Sicheng's History of Chinese architecture and application of tradtional Chinese architecture in modernity.

This traditional Chinese architecture and gardens design is marvelous. It is probably one of most picturesque styles on earth. It is such a shame that modern china is going in worst possible esthetic direction that can be. Most of modern Chinese developments are extremely trashy and disconnected from Chinese tradition.

In next 100years all cities on earth will look the same and will be filled with the same modernist blocks or glass high-risers

i'm not the biggest fan of this building. it's just a concrete block covered in a faux-forbidden city facade. sometimes incorporating traditional chinese elements into modern buildings works, but this is just kitchy.


here's a better example of a modern building with some traditional elements: it's the beijing west railway station.







i think it kind of looks like a post-modernist interpretation of a gate tower, which makes sense because it's a rail station, something like a symbolic "gate to the city."

-compare with the archery tower of the 前门 "front gate" of the inner city of old beijing that surrounded the forbidden palace and other imperial residences.
