Abstract— With the globalization, China and Japan had struggled how to handle the relationship between tradition and modernity. The process of modernity also leads to the questioning of “authenticity” in their architecture. This essay evaluates the relationship of tradition, modernity and authenticity in these countries, based on the essence and form, during the 20th century.

Index Terms— Tradition, modernity, authenticity, architecture.
