The New Wave Of Chinese Architecture
This stunning Chinese mansion was designed and built by Seattle-based architect Jim Olson. Despite being a contemporary home there are still many traditional Chinese architectural elements. The beautiful deep wood overhang of the roof is rooted in Chinese Architecture. The overhang reminds me of homes designed by architect Frank Lloyd Wright. The entrance courtyard is very symmetrical. The horizontal beams and overhung roof ground the structure. In addition, the reflecting pool and the South China Sea look like they are being connected by the living room. I like this home because it is both modern and traditional. In my opinion, this home is the new wave of Chinese Architecture.
