Reasons for the four corners of the stone paving
In parks, scenic spots, and even in the middle of the lake, we can see the existence of stone pavilions and stone pavilions. They have various styles and provide a good place for people to explore the scenery. However, most of the stone pavilions we see every day are dominated by the four corners. So why should the stone pavilion be designed in the form of a four-corner upturn?
1. Traditional style: We all know that the stone carving stone pavilion has a long history. In the traditional stone carving stone pavilion style, this four-cornered upturned form is also called a cornice, and it belongs to a fixed style of the Han nationality. In addition to being more common in stone carvings and pavilions, flying eaves are also used in house construction and pavilions.
2. More practical: After the stone carving stone pavilion is designed into the form of flying eaves, the lighting surface can be effectively enlarged, which is beneficial to the thermal insulation of the stone carving stone pavilion. Moreover, this form is also conducive to drainage, and it will not accumulate when it rains. At the same time, the cornice also has a certain decorative effect, and the form of lifting up can make the stone carving and stone pavilion more agile and brisk.
The above is the reason why the stone carving and stone pavilion are designed with the four corners up, and I hope it can help everyone. It can be seen that this design form is not only because of its better viewing, but also has a certain meaning in terms of practicality and the continuation of the culture of ancient buildings. This is why many stone carvings and stone pavilions still use the form of cornices.
