Nowaday, people tend to think that we are more advanced than our ancestors were. The truth is our techniques may be more progressive than manual methods in the past but it does not prove that our works are in a high level of beauty than those had been made long time ago. In fact, we are still learning from all the heritages which were left until today, especially in architecture.
One of the conventional rule in design is symmetry which is found in many cultural patterns from the East and even in classical imperial Western style. It may be boring to the contemporary perspective but people still be amazed by all of the gorgeous ancient buildings just like this one.
Believe it or not, our “machine-made” today architecture will never achieve the richness and deep of emotion like our glory past.
