個人簡歷:
董豫贛,北京大學建築學研究中心教師。在北大開設八年的通選課“現當代建築賞析”,一直是北大最受歡迎的精品課程之一;為哩清講義所斷續撰寫過的70餘篇論文,曾在各類雜誌上刊登;偶然著成的五本小書,三本都在半年左右重印;為教學實踐所建成的幾幢建築,則被國內外多種雜誌與報刊所刊登展覽;近年來迷戀造園,相關造園設計作品連續數年入選《中國建築藝術年鑒》,而為此在北大新開的“中國古典園林賞析”課,從當初三十余人的冷清小課,如今已成為一兩百人擁擠的熱鬧大課。
演講大綱: 中國園林的興造與建造
西方向死而生與中國事死如事生的兩種居住文化的差異,集中反映在中西方園林的起興與建造活動裡,中國園林自魏晉以來建立起的詩情畫意的身體棲居,可以比照西方中世紀園林遺留至今的視覺中心論,以全面反省先當代建築學的各種視覺表現,並對中國當代盛行的建構文化的技術化傾向提出質疑。

Personal Bio:
Dong Yugan is a teacher at the Graduate school of Architecture, Peking University. His general education course ‘Analysis of Modern/Contemporary Architecture,’ started eight years ago, remains one of the most popular courses of PKU. To develop the course, he’s written more than 70 essays and published in various magazines. He has also accidentally written five small books, three of which were reprinted within a half year. For his teaching practice, he’s constructed a few buildings, which have been widely published and exhibited in China and abroad. During the last few years, he became fascinated with garden. His garden-related design works have been collected in the Annual Book of China’s Architecture Art. His newly created course ‘Analysis of China’s Classical Gardens’ has changed from a lonely class with 30 or so students to a crowded one with 1-200 attendants.

Lecture intro.

The Intention and Construction of Chinese Garden
The West sees life as a positive process towards death in the end, while China serves the dead same as the alive. This difference in dwelling cultures is well demonstrated in the intentions and constructions of Western and Chinese gardens. The lecture compares Chinese garden, which has developed its concept of poetic bodily dwelling since Wei-Jin dynasty, to Western garden, which has been dominated by the visual-centered tendency since Mediaeval. The talk also attempts to reflect on the various visual expressions in contemporary architecture, and to question the prevalent technologicalization tendency in the development of tectonic culture in China today.


This lecture is open to the general public.

The Spring 2014 Public Lecture Series are co-sponsored by “Ronald Lu & Partners (HK) Ltd.” & “Woo, Chow, Wong & Partners (HK) Ltd.” visiting lectureship in architecture.
