Synopsis :

This ambitious and comprehensive survey of Chinese residential architecture introduces a fascinating selection of Chinese houses from every region of the country. In beautiful detail with never-before-seen photographs and illustrations, Chinese Houses offers a sweeping introduction to the diverse architecture in China. From the stately and ordered four-sided courtyard house of Beijing to the cave dwellings of Henan, from the wind-swept adobe houses of Kashi to portable yurts, this exhaustive book covers all the main residential architectural styles in China, with a special focus on ethnic minorities’ residences.
