Value cognition is a fundamental issue of architectural heritage. As a result of the materiality of human construction behavior, behind tangible, habitable, and movable objects, architectural heritage has also accumulated the hidden effects and latent influences of intangible factors over thousands of years: skills, customs, norms, memories, emotions, thoughts and concepts, and even interesting souls. Its value observation and cognition are naturally imbued with cultural and institutional differences, which are complex and difficult to avoid.
Since modern times, due to the opening of Circumnavigation and unprecedented close communications between different countries, a "major change that has not occurred in thousands of years" has come into being. Under the interactive relationship between external forces and internal factors, China's construction activities are gradually entering a period of rapid transformation. From construction technology, administrative systems, to related concepts as well as national governance, social development, economic and cultural construction, which serve as the background of their changes, are all undergoing drastic changes and have continued to nowadays. Following this trend, it is inevitable that the value cognition of the modern architectural heritage has diverse opinions, making it even more complex and confusing. Meanwhile, compared to ancient relics, modern architectural heritage has a larger amount and wider range, and has infiltrated into daily life in the post industrial society. There is a huge demand for conservation and utilization, and its value recognition and evaluation need to be executed at the forefront, which urgently needs to be clarified through communication and discussion.
If we took construction as the starting point for this discussion, the materiality of the results, practicality of the process, and subjectivity of cognition can highlight the characteristics of the architecture discipline itself - how does construction shape the essence of architectural heritage? how does construction determine the value of architectural heritage? Furthermore, how can construction empower the continued development of surviving and growing architectural heritage? ......Well-known scholars from China and abroad will be invited to join the forum, and open up communication and interactive discussions restricted in the field of modern architectural history and theory, including their concepts around the above topics.
The forum will be held on the evening of December 2nd and 3rd respectively. There will be four lectures and interactions per session. For each lecture and interaction, there will be 30 minutes for lecturing and 15 minutes for discussion.
