I like Chinese architecture.  The Chinese created pagodas after being influenced by Buddhist stupas.  They merged the aesthetic of stupa with the multistoried concept and out came the pagoda.  Pagodas are like ancient skyscrapers with attenaes.  The symbolic purpose of which is to transmit the Buddhist essence within across the land.

Fifacoins understands why I like Chinese architecture.  It has the renowned ability to take in outside influence but seamlessly integrate it into the environment that had already existed.

Quote
The origin of the pagoda can be traced to the stupa (3rd century BC).[4] The stupa, a dome shaped monument, was used as a commemorative monument associated with storing sacred relics.[4] The stupa emerged as a distinctive style of newari architecture and was adopted in Southeast and East Asia. Nepali architect Araniko visited China and shared his skills to build stupa building in China.[5][6] where it became prominent as a Buddhist monument used for enshrining sacred relics.[4] In East Asia, the architecture of Chinese towers and Chinese pavilions blended into pagoda architecture, eventually also spreading to Southeast Asia. The pagoda's original purpose was to house relics and sacred writings.[7] This purpose was popularized due to the efforts of Buddhist missionaries, pilgrims, rulers, and ordinary devotees to seek out, distribute, and extol Buddhist relics.[8]
