The Application of Traditional Symbols in Modern Architecture
Chinese traditional culture has a distinct nationality and regionality, and serves as the source of valuable creative element in architecture, at the same time it functions as the powerful weapon resisting “internationalization” and “standardization”. This paper questions the lack of nationality and regionality in current architecture industry, hopes to find the correct expression of Chinese traditional cultures in contemporary architectural design through case study, and aims to find the general application approach of traditional culture symbols in architecture.
