Analysis of development of solar architecture in China: How has modern architecture been redefined by this and Could it be the key factor in build a non-renewable energy free generation?

Introduction
In the past century, our society had changed rapidly due to varieties of newly found awareness such as the concept of global warming and shortage of our finite power supply. These awarenesses caused us to adapt and develop new techniques in order to survive. One of the many things that had been changed in our society were the architectures especially in the more developed countries such as England ,America and China.

Amongst the countless type of sustainable architecture, I have chosen to analyse the Solar Architecture in China as the main focus for this dissertation. In China, The concept of using solar energy as a direct power source had only been acknowledge in the recent years yet , as of 2005, China had became the leading solar energy pioneer in the world. So how…
