From Here To There

主讲人:胡如珊Rossana Hu

Terence Hawkes once said, “The true nature of things may be said to lie not in things themselves, but in the relationships which we construct and then perceive, between them.” "From here to there" is another way of defining the moving between spaces, the in-between, the liminal space or what is commonly called the threshold. From here to there is also our constant search for meaning and purpose…our search for belonging our search for home.

The lecture examines a series of contemporary issues in various global contexts and aims to shed light on how our practice works while maintaining an intellectual inquiry into adaptive reuse and the role of history, reimagined spatial legibility associated with voyeurism, tectonics and the use of poché, a search for a connection back to the vernacular, and the role of collective memory and fragments.

Rossana Hu has been deeply committed to architectural education and has lectured across the globe in various universities and professional forums. She was appointed Howard Friedman Visiting Professor of Practice in 2023 at University of California, Berkeley; Design Critic in 2023 and 2021, and John C. Portman Design Critic in Architecture in 2019 at Harvard Graduate School of Design; Eero Saarinen Visiting Professor in 2022 and Norman R.

Hu co-founded Neri&Hu Design and Research Office with Lyndon Neri in 2006, an inter-disciplinary architectural design practice based in Shanghai. Through her practice, Hu has reinforced a core vision: to respond to a global worldview incorporating overlapping design disciplines for a critical paradigm in architecture, while believing strongly in research as a design tool, as each project bears its unique set of contextual issues.
Hu is also Founding Partner of Design Republic in Shanghai since 2004, a design platform incorporating retail concept, design and cultural exhibitions, and education. In 2015, she was appointed as the Creative Director of Stellar Works, and has served on the International Advisory Board of the Shanghai Symphony Orchestra since 2018.
