Someone says that to understand a country, one may begins from its architecture, since architecture is a concentration of history of human life, a living memory, and a language that is easy to understand. Traditional Chinese architecture, along with European architecture and Islamic architecture, are called three architectural systems of the world. Each one, no matter a room, a tower, a hall, a temple, a bridge, or a pagoda, reflects the influence of Chinese culture, history, politics, religion, and society. This book, in the form of telling stories, introduces the cultural connotation behind different Chinese architectural forms.<br/>
