Q: Would you Incorperate Chinese Architecture in your house back Home?

I do not mean half done structures or crappy Drainage no

There are some Traditional style buildings that I think are very attractive  and toying with the idea of doing something like it back home

Anybody here had similar thoughts?

Nearby where I live there is a newly built school that is a stunning construction. It has white walls, black roof tiles, lots of traditional features....Hmmm, kind of difficult to describe, but the roof bends upwards towards the lower edge etc, yet it has a lot of modern features too. If ever we buy a plot of land I could pick some features from there.

 

It also has a very nice garden area, it is so nice that I would not be surprised if it doesn't leed to teenage pregnancies.

noNo Phil I wouldn't. It wouldn't be customary for my beliefs to do such a thing. I like to keep it simple if you know what I mean. I'm sure you do since you seem like such a simple guy! (Drunk!

 

He he, I said: "simple"!

I hope that you mean ancient traditional architecture.

If you mean "modern" you will soon find your roof in your basement.....

Now, if you mean Ancient traditional, I do love the gardens and the layout of the homes of the well to do. And I am a sucker for the roofstlyle.

When I was a kid, I wanted to live in a lighthouse.

Now, as an adult, I would love to live in a Pagoda-like building. Each floor a room.....

One can dream....

Damn, I was about to start my witty rant about crumbling walls, etc.

Then I read the rest of the question.

Slightly deflated now.

We should copy Chinese architecture, just as Chinese copy western architecture.

i have been trying to but I can't find any childrens diningroom furniture. I don't think they've made small tables and chairs out of wood in years. I like sitting almost on the floor and it saves so much room by having miniature furniture.

I would most certainly would incorporate the traditional court yard houses, they are quite serene but I probably would more likely do the Japanese style.

A:Going to HK would be the best bet I reckon, especially if you were looking for a church wedding. Chinese weddings are pretty grim IMO - you go to a barren govt dept with souless officials and navigate red tape so some guy can give you a red stamp and a marriage book. You get expensive pictures taken of you both posing in places you'd never go to in everyday life that is somehow supposed to represent your wedding, then a while later it's off to a restaurant where a game show host kind of guy makes sure it's as tacky as possible while the guests eat as fast as they can so they can leave as soon as they finish eating and gave you money. Hell, I'd go to Thailand or the Philippines and get married in Paradise.   -- Stiggs
