This paper aims to analyze the regionalism concepts in Tingbao Yang's architectural thought on the Regionalism Concept. Firstly, this study examined Tingbao Yang's career to make clear what has influenced his architectural thought. Secondly, this study analyzed his most important works to find if any regionalism concepts available by each time. Finally, we summarized the transition of the regionalism concepts in Tingbao Yang's architectural thought. As a result of these analyses, this paper reveals that at least four regionalism factors, which are climate, landform, regional material and architectural tradition, are considered in his works. Furthermore, he has even created a special design technique on them. Due to the analysis above, we find Tingbao Yang's immigration to Chongqing in 1937 played a significant role on his transformed design thinking.
