What is Architecture?

Architecture is a generalized term to describe infrastructures and other physical structures. When one studies such a course, he/she is able to understand the art and science of designing buildings and non-building structures, as well as the method of construction. Architecture also intensifies the practice of rendering professional services in connection with the design and construction of buildings.

So why study Architecture in China?

China is notoriously popular for its unique and rapid evolution of the modernized architecture. From the Great Wall of China to the Oriental Pearl Tower, this booming economic hub has sealed its position worldwide to a one step ahead.

     What has been a great advantage for China is its influence. Chinese architecture has caused a major influence in higher degrees in the development of the architecture of many neighboring Asian countries such as the architectural styles of Korea, Vietnam, and Japan, where the East Asian hip-and-gable roof design is ever present. Add to that the property boom in recent years, which encouraged many global firms to expand their practices to China. These firms need people, who understand global architecture knowledge as well as local design concepts. All these make up for an architectural education which not only builds up a pathway to your future architectural career, but expands your mind beyond the theories and challenges to generate with fresh and unique ideas.

When it comes to presenting the top universities for studying architecture, China has consistently claimed its position among the worldwide top ranked universities, hence, always reminding of its worth.
