Yingfeng SUN


Under today’s rapid globalization, protecting and inheriting cultural and regional identity has become the consensus of people. China, as the creator and leader of the oriental culture, has many cultural heritage that deserves to be protected by mankind. Among them, the traditional Chinese form of commercial shops is an important part of oriental cities. But with the tide of modern economic development and the change of buildings in modern cities, it is slowly disappearing. Therefore, how to protect, pass down and develop the technique of expression of traditional form of business environment and represent the aesthetics of oriental architecture is the responsibility of every city builder and protector. Yet, inheritance and development are not to simply copy traditional forms of commercial buildings, but to retain their outstanding traditional aesthetic elements with the principle of “promoting and discarding” and use them with modern technique of expression and decorative design, so that the buildings can reflect both rich traditional visual elements and contemporary aesthetics. This is the effective means combines protection and inheritance.
