The paper relates that the Chinese culture is masterful at making and shaping beautiful arts and crafts with their hands (Chow 37) and this artistry is also seen in Chinese architecture, which has inspired architecture globally. In fact, the paper reveals that Chinese architecture influenced many temples in Kyoto, Japan (see Appendix A) and had a major affect on the architectural style of renowned American architect Frank Lloyd Wright before he developed his own unique style (37). The paper points out that a distinguishing characteristic of Chinese architecture is that it contains many structures that are not joined together with nails, but are linked together by properly carved matching connections to provide strength and binding to the building. The paper discusses how this concept has also been adopted by modern Western architecture in the construction of columns and mobile partitions in various rooms and halls. The paper notes that Chinese architecture is also traditionally very colorful.
