Ancient Chinese architecture was designed to be attractive, especially the distinctive roofs. Traditional Chinese roofs had different forms at different stages of history. There were various roof styles with functional features, a hierarchy of designs, and exquisite details. Joints were favored over metal fixings. The interlocking and overlapping columns and crossbeams made the roofs not just strong, but also interesting to look at. The upturned eaves on roof corners are the most identifiable mark of Chinese roof architecture. Rounded tiles were most commonly used with profiles of arcs and semicircles.
