Paper Title:
Cultural Continuity of the Traditional Elements in Architecture
  Abstract

The way of “building high hathpaces” occupies a unique position in traditional Chinese architecture. According to the research, the ancient hathpace can not only increase the volume, raise the building height, make the buildings look more magnificent, but also help ascend for look far and widen your horizon, meanwhile, be beneficial to damp-proofing and ventilation for the hathpace itself. This is the thousands of years’ intelligence gathering of Chinese traditional architecture. In the design of “Hathpace of Stone Drum Pavilion in Baoji”, the designers take “inheriting Chinese architectural and cultural heritage” as its aim, use modern aesthetic view to elaborate the measurement and proportion, consequently, surpass the boundary of age and style, and refine the historical and cultural quintessence by innovating and developing which is wrapped up in traditional architecture. Meanwhile, material is the basic quality of architecture. The culture differences in the building of various nationalities and times came on materials. So, the using of stone can increase historical culture and feature of urban texture for “building high hathpaces”. A new approach to formal language, contemporary materials, and building technology will make “Hathpace of Stone Drum Pavilion in Baoji” become information carrier of traditional culture, communication platform between traditional building Stone Drum Pavilion and modern city, and unique building cultural phenomenon for the city of Baoji who will retain its graceful bearing and display the culture in Chou-Qin Dynasties, moreover, provide a new way of thinking for how to inherit the culture of traditional architecture.
