Medieval China Architecture
- Most people in ancient China could not afford to live in fancy houses. They lived in small houses made of mudbrick, with only one room.
- Rich people had fancier houses, and people also built fancy temples and palaces.
- Chinese architecture was built according to strict rules of design.
- The first design idea was that buildings should be long and low rather than tall.
- The roof would be held up by columns, and not by the walls.
