Harvard CAMLab’s program “Retrieving Traces of the Past- Liu Dunzheng and the Society for Research in Chinese Architecture” invites Mr. Liu Dunzhen’s son Liu Xujie to recount his personal perspective in a trilogy of events. We will have the exclusive pleasure to learn from one who had grown up in the presence of Mr. Dunzhen and the pioneers of Chinese architecture within the Society for Research in Chinese Architecture.

This final seminar will focus on the educational impact Liu Dunzhen had upon the Chinese architectural field and his work changing the silhouette of residential buildings and gardens.

CAMLab also invites Prof. Lai Delin, Prof. Tong Ming, Mr. Liu Xujie, and Prof. Zhang Qin to a discourse that rings in the goals of the “China Builders” project. Let us bring you closer to the iconic figures in the history of modern architecture and provide a glance into their dreams and memories that laid the foundation for building their ideal China.

Note: [This lecture will be presented in Mandarin Chinese with simultaneous translations to English. ]

This event is free to public via Zoom but advance registration is required.
