Special Issue Information

This special issue aims to explore the intricate relationships between Chinese architecture and global influences across diverse geographies. We invite scholarly contributions that delve into the multifaceted transcultural exchanges and cross-cultural influences that mould Chinese architecture in different localities. By emphasising the amalgamation of inspirations and influences from China within a global context, this issue seeks to unravel the evolving architectural and urban landscape where traditions intersect with international discourses. It aims to highlight how shared challenges can offer valuable lessons derived from different cultures and civilizations.

We encourage submissions on topics encompassing cultural fusion, history, heritage preservation, modernity, tradition, comparative architectural analysis, urbanism, urban design, and beyond. Original research articles, case studies, critical reviews, and theoretical explorations are welcome, shedding light on the intricate interplay between Chinese architectural expressions and global perspectives.
