Song construction and the Yingzao fashi

What we know about Song dynasty (960-1127) architecture comes from a small number of extant buildings and the building manual Yingzao fashi . This was written by Li Jie and published in 1103.

We will teach you about Song construction according to the rules set out in this book.
