Nanjing Yangtze River Bridge is one of the most significant cultural emblems of China in the 1960s-70s. Being regarded as both a political victory and a technological achievement, the Great Bridge became a popular icon that entered people’s everyday lives nationwide. In this lecture, Professor Andong Lu will introduce the ‘Memory Project of the Nanjing Yangtze River Bridge’, a research on collective memory and a bottom-up urban regeneration project, and interpret the artefacts and memories of the Great Bridge from a historical perspective to reveal this unprecedented landscape of collective memory. Professor Andong Lu completed his PhD at the University of Cambridge and was elected a Fellow of Wolfson College. He is now Professor at the School of Architecture and Urban Planning, Nanjing University. He initiated the Memory Project of the Grand Bridge together with a group of scholars and volunteers, intending to revitalize the memories of the bridge and to create a contemporary place of memory. Prof. Lu was extensively quoted in a recent CNN report “How the Nanjing Yangtze River Bridge changed China forever

This Lecture will be conducted in Chinese, with no interpretation. Free, but advance registration is required.

大橋故事:長江大橋的物质與記憶

星期六, 9月9日, 下午6:00-7:30PM

南京長江大橋是1960至70年代中國最重要的文化符號之一。它的設計與建造在歷史過程中被賦予了巨大的象征意義。它既是國家成就的宏大見證,同時它也在日常生活中被前所未有地廣泛傳播,因而成為千萬人情感和記憶的共同載體。華美人文學會於9月9日下午6:00至7:30特邀南京大學建築與城市規劃學院教授魯安東教授做專題講座,介紹“南京長江大橋記憶計劃”過去兩年多來收集到的大量歷史資料和情感故事,並在歷史視野下加以全面解讀,來呈現這個獨一無二的集體記憶的景觀。

魯安東,清華大學學士,英國劍橋大學碩士、博士。畢業後任教於劍橋大學,當選牛頓基金學者、劍橋大學沃夫森學院院士、德國德紹建築研究所兼職教授等。現任南京大學建築與城市規劃學院教授、博導,南京大學—劍橋大學建築與城市合作研究中心主任,《建築學報》英文版客座主編。2015年發起南京長江大橋記憶計劃,對南京長江大橋的歷史記憶開展跨學科研究,致力於塑造一個當代的記憶之場和身份景觀,實現對大橋的記憶活化和空間更新。美國CNN最近發表《南京長江大橋是如何永遠地改變了中國》一文,文中引用並提及了魯教授主持的南京長江大橋記憶計劃。了解更多
