Historic Chinese Architecture Association (HCAA)

The Historic Chinese Architecture Association (HCA) is dedicated to the global study of historic Chinese architecture and its environments. We aim to preserve and adapt Chinese heritage in contemporary building design. By analyzing its diverse elements, we uncover the essence of Chinese architecture. We also foster collaboration between students and professionals from different backgrounds, creating a balanced blend of Eastern and Western architectural insights.

Advised by Professor Bing Bu, our mission is to bridge the past and present, creating a harmonious future where Chinese architectural wisdom enriches global design practices. Join us in this journey of tradition and innovation.
