No matter which country, the aesthetic thought of architecture is regarded as an important criterion in the evaluation standard of historical architecture. These buildings carry the thoughts and emotions of architects from different eras, condensed into traces of beauty, and exist in contemporary society. This kind of aesthetic significance constantly gives new aesthetic significance through the appearance of the surface and the traces of the years. This kind of aesthetic thought has surpassed the content stipulated by the law of aesthetic form. It rises to the psychological level of aesthetic identification produced by human emotional identification. In the process of building renovation and protection practice, the most core value lies in this. This chapter uses actual cases to demonstrate the theme “aesthetic significance is the aesthetic recognition of humanistic value.
