Abstract The development of modern civlization in our societies , on the one hand , inspires residents to build new constructions in the cities; on the other hand, eliminates traditional architecture preservation. My hometown – Tsoying, is one of the examples to demonstrate how local scenery and landscape devastated due to the compact of economic and social reforms. As a resident of Tsoying as well as an advocate to protect those historical buildings, I strongly believe the local traditional architecture should not be ignored or abandoned in the modern world. Instead, those traditional buildings must be regarded as mediums to evoke “common memory” of a society and furthermore connect residents’ hearts together. As long as residents of a society launch to appreciate the beauty of their traditional architecture, they cultivate unique aesthetic experience within and gradually create new art forms to reflect their identities. Based on statements above, my research object will mainly focus on Tsoying and its changing city face. By exploring traditional buildings in Tsoying and discussing their unique aesthetic elements , I would like to present the profound racial spirit on the land. Western drawing theories and aesthetics will be utilized to support my viewpoints. This thesis will be divided into five parts:First, introduction of writing purposes: Tsoying means more than a city to me and those who grow up from here. Residents of this city not only live in its development but also live with their memories of past. Through the traditional architecture, childhood memories preserved and local identity inspired. However, with the promotion of city renew projects, modern buildings replace traditional architecture gradually. The drastic disappearance of traditional architecture means drastic disappearance of our “common memory” to the hometown. Thus, in the first part, I will describe the recent condition of traditional architecture in Tsoying and analyses factors to threat it’s preservation .Secondly, based on reference in art history and theories in both art and humanity fields: What is “tradition”? How tradition influences modern societies and people? Through studying reference in different academic fields and comparing their explanations to certain key words, we conclude a definition about tradition. As the first part mentioned, traditional buildings are residents’ common recollection to their land. Thus, the more population cherish the old buildings, the deeper local identity rooted. In this part, I will focus on “tradition” in advance and discuss how tradition survives in a modern world.Third, by studying the English drawing traditions in scenery: we figure out the core value of western aesthetics is to look for the harmony between nature and manufacture. By presenting the spirit of the following art traditions: Picturesque﹐ Realism, Surrealism, Pre-Raphaelitism , the water color drawings of Andrew Wyeth and etc., we will understand how western art tradition present its admiration to “tradition” in works. And , moreover, I will pull back to my oil painting works and explain my viewpoints within.Forth, drawing techniques and utilized materials：briefly introduce techniques and materials utilized in works and review their efforts. Fifth, works analyses.Sixth, conclusion.Through this thesis and my works, I eager to evoke people’s concern to traditional buildings’ reservation. Old buildings are important properties to any races.
