The Design of Chinese Monasteries: Space, Structure, and Place brings together recent scholarly ideas to unfold the physical and visual signifi­cance of Buddhist Architecture in the built environment. From the perspective of architectural design, the symposium revisits critical issues of space, form, typology, and structure on the design of Buddhist monasteries in history, through the lens of their monastic spatial practices. The symposium examines:

PLACE AND SITE 09:30 am

The development of monastery layouts within the landscape; the conception and organization of monastic landscapes; the architectural representation of sacred sites and famous mountains within the Monasteries.

SPACE AND RITUAL 11:30 am

The formation of spatial ideas through Buddhist ideology, ritual, and spiritual practices; the development of spatial layouts and image placement in Buddhist Halls, Pavilions, Pagodas, and Cave Shrines within Monasteries.

STRUCTURE AND FORM 02:00 pm

The tectonics of structural types and the conception of architectural forms in Buddhist monuments; the transformation of monastery forms and spaces in different religious, cultural, and historical contexts.

The symposium is a collaboration of the Tsz Shan Monastery with HKU’s Center for Chinese Architecture and Urbanism, Department of Architecture. With the support of Tsz Shan Monastery and HKU, the Center provides a teaching and research programme on the study of Buddhist Architecture in China and Asia.
