    About the Book; In the early twentieth century, Chinese traditional architecture and the French-derived methods of the École des Beaux-Arts converged in the United States when Chinese students were given scholarships to train as architects at American universities whose design curricula were dominated by Beaux-Arts methods. Architecture — like many professions — has its educational hierarchy. At the end of the 19th and early 20th centuries, Brooklyn had scrappy self-taught architects like the great Montrose Morris, and trained architects like James Naughton who attended Cooper Union.. But then you had the creme de la creme: those who learned architecture at L’Ecole des Beaux-Arts in Paris.
