Various and Flexible Catholic Churches of Baroque Style in Shanxi Province
This paper is to analyze the feature of combination of foreign and local elements in architecture and summarize the creative methods applied in the baroque catholic churches in Shanxi based on the related surveys and researches. It’s a good example explaining that the process of the gradual recognition of foreign architecture forms is also a process of localization. During this process, the local craftsmen have gradually created new and localized architectural forms based on their combination of traditional aesthetics and local techniques, which is significantly enlightening on the localized design of contemporary architectures.
