Text is in German and English. Divides the topic into three groups: "the religious and secular building in Hangchow, the Imperial Palace and Summer Garden in Peking, and the residential and garden pavilions in Suchow. These classical buildings create a liberating impression because they concentrate on the essential and eschew the unessential: here o[r]der and truth are law; structure and modulation are freedom."
