Abstract—Building materials are not only the material basis of construction, but also an important carrier of regional architectural culture. With the development of The Times, building materials have also changed. How to use traditional and modern materials to show the regionality and contemporaneity of architecture is an unavoidable problem in the development of regional architecture and the goal of architectural creation. Taking Huizhou contemporary regional architecture as examples, this paper discusses the material expression of Huizhou contemporary regional architecture through three ways: the modern expression of traditional materials, the regional expression of modern materials and the juxtaposition of old and new materials.

Index Terms—regional architecture, tradition and modernity, material, expression
