Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Ancient Chinese architecture is not only a source of reference for modern Chinese design, it has also had an international influence and attracted global attention. Moreover, architectural remains in China reveal much about the history of this ancient civilisation. The palaces, gardens, temples, tombs and dwellings of the Chinese people reflect, for example, the military achievements of the Qin emperor, the spirit of the Tang Dynasty, the palace intrigues of the Ming Dynasty, the diversity of Chinese culture through the ages and the skill of countless generations of craftsmen and laborers. Chinese Architecture provides an accessible, illustrated introduction to this essential part of China's cultural heritage.

Synopsis:

This book provides an illustrated introduction to Chinese architecture, a reference for modern design and a window into China's history.
