International Surveys

The goal of this project is to reconstruct the original appearances of historical buildings, both made of wood and stone, by analyzing available survey data and data on construction techniques. Using the results from this project, restoration plans for some twenty treasure-designated buildings will be drawn up over the medium to long term.

As part of this project, comparative research is being conducted on ancient architectures of Korea, China and Japan. Surveys are performed on ancient Chinese and Japanese buildings, and more particularly those located in Shanxi Province to objectively assess Korean architectural techniques developed and utilized during antiquity, which should also assist the institute’s effort for developing more effective restoration and maintenance procedures.

Comparative Studies on Ancient East Asian Architecture

This project constitutes a comparative analysis of ancient Korean, Chinese, and Japanese buildings. The objective is to define the architectural styles of ancient Korean buildings by studying ancient architectural techniques, and consequently find methods for their restoration and preservation. Furthermore, a basis for the study of ancient buildings in Northeast Asia will be pursued through continuous academic exchange.

The study findings will be published and used as academic data. A report was published in 2009. We also have plans to begin surveys of ancient Japanese architecture.
