  • Building DesignThe most important rules of building were: buildings should be long and low instead of skinny and tall symmetrical roof was held up by columns instead of the walls (walls are for just for closing the space)
  • Other things about houses: Most homes had a central house with wings attached Rooms faced south for protection against wind
  • Roofs Roofs pointed upwards at the end to ward off evil spirits They are also curved to look like a brushstroke in calligraphy
  • Gardens/Courtyards Most homes had gardens or courtyards are supposed to look like the world outside: big rocks were mountains, ponds were oceans and small trees and bushes were big trees Rocks were very important-special for decoration
  • Pavillions Made of wood or stone Can be almost any shape Can be made almost anywhere Have no walls
