well, but not all them. Some are in traditional style but in a modern way, these are the good ones, not the ones that copy every element and make it bigger

Well, that Cloud Temple is one of the rather... questionable examples.

Communism and kitsch go hand in hand. They'll need ages to recover from it. My country still is.
There is more to traditional architecture(of any kind) than the visual appearance. All shown here is Disneyland.
However, nice to see the lost wisdom gaining power, hopefully one day they will revive their forgotten sense of style and measure.

^ Some of the buildings shown in here are really faithful constructions, created with traditional handcraft and great eyes for correct details.

As featured in Beijing University for instance.

You're being unfair here.

And please stop repeating that lame disney land argument, it just doesn't work.

Any more recent examples that are noteworthy?

How about a skyscraper/highrise in traditional Chinese architecture? Would such one come along too tacky, or do you think it's considerable?

Nice! it's good that they still preserve the beauty of ancient chinese architecture, and combine it with modern touch. Ancient chinese architecture are beautiful, I like their vibrant use of colors, carving and their deep attention to details.
I don't like cities which are full of modern concrete and glass buildings, modern buildings are lack of art.

Hi guys I am deleting all pictures right now that have not been properly sourced. For some reason a lot of you don't respect the forumrules here that have been notified multiple times. So I see no other solution.

If the pictures are taken by yourself please mention so.

Love all these new buildings, built with the touch of traditional chinese architecture, so beautiful! especially the modern shops by a river in nanjing, they should build more. I like classic architecture, it's rich of art and modern building has no art and characters.

Time for a thread revival!



New Hall - Yingxian, Datong, Shanxi, China

The rest if the temple isn't as lucky and only the pogoda remained. The new hall is built in the style of the main hall for temple during that era, however current it only functions as a museum building for relics found in the area as the temple is not an active temple.

Another impressive one:

Chinese-Neo-Classic Jiangfa Buddhist Temple at Mount Putuo / 普陀山 讲法寺院
Putuo District, Zhoushan City, Zhejiang Province, Eastern China





Being the seat of the Bodhisattva Avalokiteśvara / 观音菩萨, it is one of the Four Most Sacred Buddhist Mountains in China, along with:

Mount Wutai / 五台山 (Seat of the Bodhisattva Manjusri / 文殊菩萨)
Mount Jiuhua / 九华山 (Seat of the Bodhisattva Ksitigarbha / 地藏菩萨)
Mount Emei / 峨嵋山 (Seat of the Bodhisattva Samantabhadra / 普贤菩萨)
