Chinese Interior Architecture: A Journey Into China’s Surreal Past

Chinese interior architecture is perhaps the most fascinating part of Chinese culture, and this is partly due to the fact that, like all Chinese culture of the past, its origins are hidden. 

For decades, it was thought that the first Chinese architects were the artists of the Tang dynasty, a period from 1344-1911, when China became the largest country in the world.

It was the Tang Dynasty that produced the first modernist architectural style, which emphasized vertical space, the “tall” form, and the use of wood for structural reinforcement. 

But when the Tang era ended, there was a gap in Chinese design that required an entirely new approach. 

The next big challenge was how to create a style that could take advantage of modern materials and construction methods, which were not only less costly and easier to manufacture, but also much easier to build. 

It was the Ming Dynasty that ushered in the modernist era, with the development of the Ming style, the most advanced of all styles. 

When the Ming dynasty ended, the Chinese landscape became increasingly barren, with only a handful of small towns and cities left, including the capital, Beijing, and its surrounding suburbs. 

These areas were also home to vast swaths of unplanned land, including vast stretches of forest, which would later become known as the Forbidden City. 

In the Forbidden city, a vast, open space, there were still many people living and working in the shadow of the massive Forbidden Palace. 

There were also some very wealthy people living there, which meant that they had access to a lot of art, architecture, and other treasures, and many of them kept the art in their homes, or kept it on display in private homes. 

With the Forbidden Palace still under construction, it became increasingly difficult for Chinese architects to get their work into the Forbidden Gardens, which are now home to the Forbidden Art Museum, an incredible collection of Chinese architecture, sculpture, and more. 

Although the Forbidden Garden is no longer under construction today, it is still an incredible place to visit.

 It is now one of the world’s largest, most diverse, and beautiful open spaces, and it has the potential to become even more so as the city of Beijing is renovated to the level of a city of more than one billion people.

There is also a very high demand for the architecture and art of the Forbidden garden, with visitors from all over the world flocking to see it.

The Forbidden Garden was also home for the first and only international symphony, the world famous Beethoven Concerto in the form of the Wojtek-Gardens Orchestra, which performed every night for over 100 years.

This is the most important, and perhaps only, piece of classical music ever performed in the Forbidden palace, and you can see the original concerto in the video below:The Forbidden Gardens are also home, along with the Forbidden River, to a collection of some of the most stunning architecture in the whole world, which includes a series of huge statues of gods that have been designed and built from scratch by the artists themselves.

If you are planning to visit the Forbidden gardens in the future, make sure to visit as early as possible, as these areas have already been closed for renovation, and will not reopen until at least 2035.

I would also recommend getting to know the artists involved in the design of the gardens, and see the incredible pieces that are displayed in the various pavilions that are located around the gardens. 

I would recommend spending a little time at one of these places before you leave, and then, if you can, visit the gardens on your own, and do the entire garden yourself, to see what it is like.

While the Forbidden Chinese Garden is the largest, and most fascinating, of all of the Chinese gardens, I would also suggest that it is not the only one, as the Wólka-Garden is also in the area.

When it comes to Chinese architecture and architecture in general, the Forbidden, Wóllkas Gardens are definitely worth the trip.
