Associations of men of the same trade probably began as social clubs whose purposes included mutual assurance of a proper funeral and care of the deceased craftsman's family. As the influence of the state spread and deepened, these organizations became larger and were increasingly brought under government control. They apparently became subject to government assignment, at least for major projects in big cities, and they were one of the chief instruments of an imperial architect's will.
