The symmetry is a remarkable aesthetic characteristic in the traditional Lingnan architecture. The connection between the symmetrical beauty and aesthetical principles like proportion, composition, balance, order, unity, harmony and rhythm is emphasized. Through analyzing the composition, proportion, balance, rhythm and unity of some typical examples of Lingnan architecture, the author attempts to explore its symmetrical forms and reveal its cultural connotations such as valuing the humanistic pragmatism, the open-minded social psychology, the intuitive mode of thought and the nature-admiring aesthetic ideal. Studying this issue is of great significance for the preservation of the traditional architecture as well as the modern architectural design.
