Fujian province, as the starting point of ancient Maritime Silk Road and a major hub of the 21st Century Maritime Silk Road, serves as a research frontier of Fujian and Taiwan regional culture. Its special geographic environment and long and complex immigration history gave birth to a diversified folk architecture culture. Taking the establishment as an opportunity and taking advantage of Fuzhou city as a major hub city for the Maritime Silk Road, Fujian University of Technology strives to build the Fuzhou Research Base into an international research base for open exchanges and resource sharing and complementary advantages, as well as a technical platform for BRI cultural heritage protection and scientific development.
