A Performance of the Liberal Study Series on "Modern China"

 

The history of Chinese architecture as told through the stories of two couples almost a century apart. Liang Sicheng, the Father of Modern Chinese Architecture, and his wife Lin Huiyin, the first female architect in China, dedicated their lives to the preservation of ancient Chinese architecture. Zhang Xin and her husband Pan Shiyi, the most successful real estate developers in China, introduced Western hip, urban architecture to the country. Romance and profit; living and existing. From the poetry and romance of architecture to the profits and reality of architecture. Two couples stand out, bookending this particular hundred years of time, and of architecture in China.
