Spatial Aesthetics of the Chinese Garden as Seen from Cinematic Images

April 10 @ 8:00 pm - 9:30 pm

| Free

The spatial aesthetics epitomized in the Chinese Garden is a climax of Chinese culture and art. It involves architecture, gardening, literature, calligraphy, painting, and craftsmanship, and in a unique way, integrates them in the creation of an ideal world to accommodate the mind. The Renwen Society presents a lecture by Prof. Lu Andong on April 10 on the Chinese Garden as seen from cinematic images. Prof. Lu will share with the audience his more than ten years of teaching cinematic architecture at Nanjing University and guiding students to understand and visualize the spatial aesthetics of the Chinese Garden through contemporary moving images. Such visuals enable viewers to reinterpret many aesthetic features of traditional gardens and appreciate their inspirations for contemporary designs. Prof. Lu will screen 8 to 10 short films at the lecture and discuss a number of major cinematic characteristics of garden aesthetics.

Prof. Lu Andong received his Ph.D. in 2009 from the University of Cambridge and was elected a Fellow of Wolfson College in 2010. He is now a professor at the School of Architecture and Urban Planning, Nanjing University, where he also acts as head of the Department of Architecture as well as director of the Interdisciplinary Centre of Urban Studies at the university’s Institute for Advanced Studies in Humanities and Social Sciences. He was previously a guest professor at the Dessau Institute of Architecture and Henry Luce Foundation’s Visiting Professor at Pennsylvania State University. He is a standing member of the Committee of Urban Design, Committee of Architectural Critics and Committee of Architectural Media of the Architectural Society of China. His research focuses on urban narratives and place-making, the application of digital media in architecture, and history and theory of modern architecture and urbanism in China.

Free, but advanced registration is requested.
