China embraces both a vast territory and abundant landforms, with a mountainous region accounting for 69% of its total area. Being a kind of architecture constructed based on the natural and unique beautiful landforms of China, the mountainous architecture reflects people’s love of nature, the expectation of integrating into and harmonizing with nature as well as the inner sincerity for returning to nature. The space pattern of the architecture in the environment is what reflects best the earths landscape. Such a reflection lies in the following aspects: the first is the focus of the planning layout on the utilization of the natural environment as well as the formation of the casual atmosphere; the second is the pursuit of the silent fusion, or the pursuit of artistic conception, between the landscapes through the appearance of the architecture;  and finally comes the harmony between the architecture and the local culture, or a penetration into and exploration of the local culture, which fuses the architecture into the land and into the historical vicissitudes. This is also the objective for the design of the public architecture, which means to satisfy the human needs and achieve sensory enjoyment as well as highlight the culture inheritance, only by such kind of design, can a new ecological landscape with emotions be alive.
