Abstract: The physical context and architectural professionalism have drifted far away from the traditional conventions after our society went through modernization. Facing these dramatic transformations, people still hold on to the same unchanged perspective and values toward living environment. To pursuing on this contrasting phenomenon, we found it to be the result of the architectural culture, which is co-establishment by occupational structure and the social values. It is important for me to traced it back in seeking for the significant design prospective that has been exist in shaping and re-shaping the building culture of the Taiwanese house in that traditional period. However, related architecture documentation is rather silent presently, such as architect ure were done by craftsman’s prior experiences or inspired by Chinese landscape painting. This profound “silent documentation” could presumably function as an invisible obstacle to or an impetus for the progress of modernization in Chinese architecture. Traditional building ideology inherited from previous dynasties did not conceive of a “building” as pure “matter” with an objective, external face. Rather, it deemed of a “building” as “becoming” through coordinated activities in everyday life, and “becoming” is always the process of completion. To get this study closer to the core of the phenomenon of “becoming” we raise the hypothesis that there is a real force behind the existence of the substantial action of building which lives through numerous styles of houses. For instance, how did the architects think of the building design in term of its spatial relationship of the building? As a matter of fact, people or the building users from different places and experiencing distinctive events come mingle together in time. They all take part in the building mechanism that we call “becoming” in term of the social significance of building culture. The building users can give some feedbacks or advices after they have been lived or worked in the building for certain time. The feedback is very important information that the architect should be full considered in their future design.
