Through this journey, you will find that the western ancient buildings have a remarkable advantage. That is firmness and permanence. Some buildings have been standing for thousands of years.
But, generally, Chinese ancient architecture cannot be preserved for such a long time. For example, you can hardly find an above ground building which was built 1000 years ago except some stone towers.
Chinese: Wooden Structure
Western: Stone Structure
Stone Structure is firmer and using it won’t affect nature a lot.
