Chinese vernacular buildings are often referred to as “spectacles without architects”. During this talk, Ms. Pu and the speakers will introduce the "spirit of place" in each type of vernacular buildings — the cave house, the stilt house, the earth structure and the courtyard. They will also discuss the potential for developing modern architectural forms that incorporate traditional elements derived from these indigenous houses, and how doing so would fulfill architecture’s ultimate purpose to enrich the spirit of its dwellers.
The language of the event will be Chinese.
