The Traditional Elements and Modern Architectural Design
Architecture is not only functional, economic, and technical and other physical characteristics, but also closely related to human behaviors. Therefore, it also has originality, visual aesthetics and function to beautify the living characteristics. To keep interest in the exterior, with a strong modern style of "purity, geometry and sculptural architecture", should not be the best way. It is worth to integrate the traditional elements, symbols, with modern forms and ideas together to form the environmental and architectural modes with the cultural heritage and modern atmosphere, and their cultural patterns. To create an architectural culture in modern buildings that could keep the traditional cultural spirit and sustainable development may be our target to continually pursue.
