Introduction

The history of Asian architecture and urbanism is as extensive and diverse as the many countries and cultures that embody it. The purpose of this research guide is to provide a selection of basic English language resources that outline key elements of architecture, landscape architecture, and city planning in China, Japan, and Korea from approximately 1400 BCE to the present. 

The guide is intended to assist with beginning research of courses Architecture 170A and 170B and Landscape Architecture 170. Many  materials are in the Environmental Design Library, UC Berkeley. Related materials may be found in other campus libraries such as the Doe and Moffitt libraries or the C.V. Starr East Asian Library. For additional assistance please consult the Environmental Design Library reference staff, 210 Wurster Hall.
