建筑与城市

Architecture and City







The first symposium ‘Architecture and City’ was presented by Lei Yang (AA DRL), Jingming Wu (AA Phd Candidate) and Cyan Jingru Cheng (AA Projective Cities and AA Phd Candidate), and chaired by Jing Qiao (AA Diploma). A description of each thesis follows:

Lei Yang explored the possible implementation of B.M. Fuller’s vision, geodesic dome hovering above Manhattan, under the discussion of technological evolution. His research led to hypotheses of an ecological-micro-world as a transformation of semi-public space.

Jingming Wu discussed ‘Chinese Classical Garden’. It was a narrative term coined in 20th century, within the aesthetical and political context, as a device to make Chinese and Western urban representation comparable. She argued that ‘Chinese Classical Garden’, predominantly overused by architects, is in fact an invented tradition.

Cyan Jingru Cheng investigated possibilities of Chinese cities of the future, which will be confronted by a fundamental hukou reform in the next two decades. While defining the current and historical Chinese planning models as a cellular logic, she proposed a new infrastructural logic overlapping the existing urban structure as an urban revolution.

The three presentations cut across various aspects of technology, history and society, followed by sharp and insightful discussions contributed by both speakers and audience.


The symposium of ‘Architecture and City’ is just a beginning. ACROSS Architecture will witness more and more diverse events, bringing together academics and practitioners to exchange ideas of architecture and city. A platform for sharing knowledge in the field of architecture is arising.
2014年6月28日,“建筑东西”在伦敦中国设计中心成功举办了以‘建筑与城市’为主题的首次交流会。活动由乔婧(AA Diploma)主持,杨磊(AA DRL),吴静明(AA Phd Candidate)和程婧如(AA Projective Cities and AA Phd Candidate)分别围绕城市与建筑的主题通过建筑技术、历史理论和社会政治三个方面分享了他们的研究。

杨磊基于R. B. Fuller “壳”中城新城市猜想的理论,通过福斯特设计的大英博物馆穹顶等知名案例讨论了通过技术革新来实现能源的更少消耗和更高质量生活的城市公共空间的可能性。

吴静明回顾了童寯的古典园林文学研究,其理论被当代建筑师演绎为城市建筑设计手法和讨论媒介,影响了城市建筑批判理论并形成了传统

文化崇拜。然而,她提出这些建筑文学都是建立在无中生有之上。

程婧如讨论了中国当下面临的户口改革,一次政治与经济领域内的变革。然而城市与政治经济之间的紧密关系决定了这必将带来一次彻底的城市与建筑的改革。她提出了一种新的基础设施网络化的城市模型并讨论了随之带来的城市管治革新的可能性。

这次主题交流会只是一个开始,“建筑东西” 力求打造一个建筑界知识分享与思想交流的平台。“建筑东西”将带来更多丰富的活动,让学者与实践者齐集一堂。
