Kicking off in Yongxiu county, Jiujiang city of Jiangxi province on April 13, a seminar delved into the historical importance and contemporary utilization of Yangshi Lei imperial architecture.

The Yangshi Lei family of architects thrived during the Qing Dynasty (1644-1911), with many members serving as chief architects for the Qing court, contributing to the design of buildings now recognized as world cultural heritage sites in China, such as the Summer Palace in Beijing and the Mountain Resort in Chengde, Hebei province.

Regarded as a vital component of human archival heritage, Yangshi Lei architectural records offer a window into ancient Chinese architectural design concepts and methods. The two-day event, hosted by the National Library of China, aimed to further uncover the cultural value of Yangshi Lei, leveraging it to invigorate the Chinese economy and establish a globally influential emblem of Chinese culture.
