Walking Macao, Reading the Baroque

This chapter discusses Chinese architecture and shows that the baroque also integrates nature and culture. The discussion considers buildings and spaces, all Chinese in design, which are the opposite of the official, civic, and defensive buildings that represent the public face of Portuguese colonialism. These often show a certain repression of the baroque, preferring the neo-classical. It is important to note that only those structures that are part of the “heritage” of Macao are discussed.

Keywords:   Chinese architecture, baroque, nature, culture, Portuguese colonialism, repression, neo-classical, heritage of Macao
