tingting hong ()

With the support of the Chinese Academy of Engineering, we have researched cities and villages in Fujian Province that have distinctive folk cultural characteristics. This article focuses on Xiamen, a diverse city with oceanic, Minnan and overseas Chinese cultures. Despite its high level of urbanization, its ceremonial spaces have been well-preserved. By studying its distribution patterns and developmental history, we reveal the basic ways and methods of survival for traditional ceremonial spaces in the urbanization process, providing a reference for cultural roots-seeking, inheritance, and development.
