Chinese architecture demonstrates an architectural style that developed over millennia in China, before spreading out to influence architecture all throughout East Asia.

In the early twentieth century, Chinese traditional architecture and the French-derived methods of the Ecole des Beaux-Arts converged in the United States when Chinese students were given scholarships to train as architects at American universities whose design curricula were dominated by Beaux-Arts methods.

The main feature of traditional Chinese architecture has been its stability; styles did not change much over the centuries. In Europe, styles came in and out of fashion and so it is easy to guess the date of a building to within a century, this can not be done so easily in China. Few of the ‘ancient’ buildings in China date back further than the Ming dynasty, due to the mainly wooden construction.

Chinese Temple Architecture

Chinese Temple Architecture. Chinese temples--whether they be Taoist, Buddhist or Confucian--have a similar lay out, with features found in traditional Chinese courtyard houses and elements intended to confuse or repel evil spirits. Temples are usually surrounded by a wall and face south in accordance with feng shui principals. Traditional Chinese temples contain wall paintings, carved tile walls and shrines to gods and ancestors that in turn are wonderfully decorated with wood carvings, murals, ceramic figures and plaster moldings with motifs that the Chinese regard as auspicious
