9780195851151: The Chinese House: Craft, Symbol and the Folk Tradition (Images of Asia)

This pioneering work in Chinese domestic architecture examines for the first time the Chinese house from a cultural perspective. Knapp explores how the typical Chinese home reveals a long folk tradition of craft and symbolism, including the popular practices of fengshui. Extensively illustrated with wood block prints from traditional Chinese homes, original line drawings, and Knapp's own photographs, the book vividly portrays a living tradition of amazing resilience.

Review:


"Excellent....One can learn much about the Chinese house in one reading of the book or can put it in a pocket and take it to China as a guide to the most common type of premodern Chinese construction that can be seen today."--Journal of the Society of Architectural Historians
