Lijiang was heavily damaged in 1996 by an earthquake. In the Old City the buildings damaged were restored and rebuilt, in the new city their replacements were done in Ming Dynasty style. The new plan isn't anything to do with earthquake damage, it's trying to lessen the tourist overcrowding in the Old City by 'extending' it.

1700 year old Dachang has been rebuilt on the banks of the Yangtze in Chongqing municipality. Currently 35 old buildings have been rebuilt, the town will cover 48.7 sq. km when complete.

Coreect me if I'm wrong but I think theyve transported brick by brick a town drowned by the dam?

Cool pics!

Wow, they really do have a good sense of historical preservation! It's nice to see how traditions and modern life merge in this old-style, new architecture!

That's the Jing An Temple.

"The first temple was built in 247 AD, at the time of the Kingdom of Wu, during the Three Kingdoms period. Originally located beside Suzhou Creek, it was relocated to its current site in 1216 during the Song Dynasty. The current temple was rebuilt once in the Qing Dynasty. It's most recent renovation was in late 2008."


Not sure if it qualifies as it isn't "new Chinese architecture", but rather an old renovated building.
