Paper Title:
A Study on Traditional Craftsmanship of Wuxi Dayao Bricks and Tiles
  Abstract

Wuxi Dayao bricks and tiles are famous for their elegant form and durable quality, but they have gradually withdrawn from historical stage because of lack of innovation of modern technology. They are the crystallization of ancient peoples’ wisdom in transforming nature and improving their living qualities with over six hundred years’ traditional craftsmanship, and have profound significance for prolonging Chinese traditional architectural culture and improving existing building materials. Therefore, it is necessary to carry out researches and inheritance.
