Minyang Fusion Architecture 閩洋折衷建築建築 is a form of early 20th century vernacular architecture distinguished by an eclectic blend of traditional Fujian and modern Western styles. Drawing influence from the decorative motifs of Baroque Revival, Art Deco, and Modern architecture, the Minyang Fusion style is most commonly seen on shophouses, mansions, and courtyard homes (sanheyuan). Think of it as the common counterpart to the more formal and institutional western architectural style seen on government and commercial buildings, particularly during the Japanese colonial era.
