China has nourished diverse building cultures that have befriended mountains and oceans, that have received sunshine and snow. It is INTBAU China’s mission to represent, develop, encourage and celebrate and INTBAU China will do so by achieving the following objectives:

To raise awareness of traditional craftsmanship, arts, architecture, and urbanism through social media, public lectures, training courses, and workshops.

To collaborate with existing groups devoted to traditional architecture, to encourage diverse conversations across groups and professions.

To collaborate with craftsmen, artists, and practitioners who share INTBAU’s values and to increase the professional opportunities available to them.

To share knowledge about China’s built environment and heritage internationally through short-term activities that welcome participants from around the world.
