With the continuous improvement of people's living standards, architectural design technology is constantly optimized and upgraded in the context of rapid economic development. Architectural design must not only maintain the basic functions of the building, but also take into account its artistic and formal beauty. After thousands of years of accumulation, Chinese culture has precipitated a heavy national culture. Integrating the traditional culture of the Chinese nation into architectural design is an important measure to inherit the national culture and enhance the taste of architectural design. Symbols are markers for certain objects. Chinese traditional cultural symbols have metaphorical and symbolic characteristics. Applying them to modern architectural design can better enhance the artistic taste of construction. On the contrary, architectural design gives higher traditional symbols. The article explores the application of Chinese traditional cultural symbols in architectural design.
