Abstract:

Shows exhaustive regard for the sources of architecture; a research approach to original documents dealing with building techniques and architectural science; visual descriptions.

"The dictionary is distinguished by three characteristics: its concern with the exhaustive search for sources of architecture; a research approach to original documents dealing with architectural science and building techniques; and visual descriptions." "The dictionary provides definitions of technical terms; elucidates design, structure and construction practices; interprets techniques, standards, and regulations; documents building materials and tools; and explains typical features that reveal Chinese architecture as a continuous process of evolution from remote antiquity through to contemporary practices." "This book covers specialist areas including: carpentry units, systems, modules and assemblies; design, form and scale; carpentry, joinery, masonry and adobe; building structures and constructions; interior and decoration; working procedures and manufacturing techniques; and building materials and tools. It will be a useful asset to the resources of architects, artisans, builders, and indeed anyone interested in Chinese architecture."--Jacket
