Roofs are a very important part of Chinese architecture. Rooftops with sweeping slopes ending in upturned, projecting eaves and tiled corners, sometimes in several tiers, are a unique feature to the classical Chinese architecture.
The curve upward is a hydraulic device to throw the water further away fron the building. This a very clever design, but western Architects didn't use this type of device in buildings because it is labor and material intensive.
Chines rooftops, often decorated with ornaments and small sculptures, are beauty and pleasure, a practical thing doing a dull common every day utilitarian task. The magic and the practical, the real and the unreal, are welded together each doing its respective job.
