In Search of China's Soul ~ WebinART | Architecture with Chinese Characteristics: How the Past is Driving New Ideas for China's Future Cities

Wednesday, October 27, 2021
7:30-8:30 PM
Off Campus Location
Join top architects and urban thinkers for a wide-ranging discussion on China’s cities of the future. For decades, China’s planners focused on tearing down the old, and building the new in order to fuel the nation’s rapid development. Glistening cities rose, while psychological and social costs took a back seat. Today, as China struts more confidently on the world stage, its architects are reaching back to Chinese tradition to reinvent urban planning—and redefine what it means to be modern. Speakers include LRCCS Associate Director Lan Deng, Professor of Urban Planning, Alfred Taubman College of Architecture and Urban Planning; Shuishan Yu, Associate Professor of Architecture and Affiliate Associate Professor of Music at Northeastern University; Wang Hui, Principal Architect and Co-founder of URBANUS Architecture & Design Inc.; and Xu Lei, Chief Architect and Director of the Yihe Architectural Design and Research Center of the China Architecture Design and Research Institute.
