Book Description
Despite the relentless social, economic and political turmoil of the past two centuries, fine examples of domestic architecture have survived in China, some in a complete form, others a vestigial echo of an earlier grand state. Scattered throughout the country are exquisite examples of traditional dwellings.. Smaller numbers of once-dilapidated houses have been salvaged by heing adaptively reused, beautifully renovated, and tastefully furnished in traditional style, thus reinvigorating them as modern residences. Chinese Houses focuses on twenty well preserved traditional homes, presenting examples from various metropolitan areas throughout China as well as rural examples found in Anhui, Fujian, Guangdong, Henan, JIangxi, Shanxi, Sichuan, and Zhejiang.
