New Chinese-ness          

Advised by Mark Lee

New Chinese-ness is a thesis research topic focusing on the curation of a repertoire of Chinese architectural heritages and expanding the current periphery of old-new Chinese architecture. The repertoire aims to reveal and dismantle the rigidity of prevailing design schemes in order to provide novel viewpoints on visual and spatial knowledge of the new Chinese style. Borrowing and adapting from “analogue architecture,” the thesis project aims to strategically inherit traditional Chinese architectural logic in the context of a modern museum through the process of repertoire, analogy, and improvisation.
