Suzhou Old City







Chi Lin Nunnery, Hong Kong



Lijiang Old and New Town (much was rebuilt after the 1996 earthquake)






New Temple, Zhongdian (there are 200 monasteries being rebuilt in Tibet and thousands of temples in China after the ravages of the Cultural Revolution)




Beijing's Old Summer Palace, the worlds largest gardens -a VAST system of 40 artificial lakes each with an island palace is very controversially being rebuilt in er, Hengdian.






I would still like to see more of it though, and its a shame so much has been recently lost too...

That's massive. They should build some skyscrapers like this. Also I'd like to see some of those monster modern bridges covered with the aspect of traditional Chinese gates.

It's a great decision. China and generally Asia, MUST preserve and develop their own architecture. I'm sad that a lot of cities are standardizing a global architecture. If the architects continue to ignore the particular aspects of each place and culture, in 100 years, you'll can go all around the world and see everywhere the same urban nature, the same urban soul.

It's a very honourable and witty architecture. I wrongly thought that China wasn't care very much about this. I'm a little bit relieved.

Chinese architectures especially from the Tang dynasty is symbolic and synonymous with China. Its good that Suzhou with its beautiful gardens and canals puts it in a unique place for canal architecture outside of Venice. Suzhou is the Venice of China.
