The purpose of this study is to reveal the characteristics of space patterns of Tibetan Buddhist represented by Labrang Monastery, which classify and sum up the architectural space of the monastery by typology. Based on the measured data of the architectural space, “Space-line-of-sight” analysis method, the author puts forward that the core idea of the space construction of the Tibetan Buddhist dratsang building in Gannan area is try to use the contrast of space scale to explain the symbolic significance of using “door” as the “cult’s way” to paradise. The “door” of the dratsang buildings as the basic design point establish a series of visual control methods, which the “door-pillar-joss” visual perception system is the mainly part.
