Shiqiao Li Guest Professor at IN-EAST
Shiqiao Li will visit the IN-EAST and the IN-EAST School as Hiroshi Kitamura Fellow on Oct. 6–13, 2018 and will give a talk on Monday, Oct. 8, 2018
Li Shiqiao, PhD is Weedon Professor in Asian Architecture and Architecture + Architectural History and Chair of Architectural History at the University of Virginia’s School of Architecture. His research is focused on understanding Chinese architecture with its culture and intellectual frameworks. He studied architecture at Tsinghua University in Beijing and obtained his PhD from AA School of Architecture and Birkbeck College, University of London. Li practiced architecture in London and Hong Kong, and initiated design proposals which were published and exhibited in journals and international exhibitions.
Prof. Li Shiqiao seeks for spatial understanding with deep cultural frameworks through studies of Chinese cities, as well as how these cultural frameworks are fundamentally structured by distinctive features stemming from the linguistic constructs of Indo-European and Sinitic languages. All these come together to formulate new theoretical grounds for design.
His books include Understanding the Chinese City (Sage, 2014), Kowloon Cultural District (MCCM Creations, 2014), Architecture and Modern Thought (China WaterPower Press, 2009) and Power and Virtue: Architecture and Intellectual Change in England 1660–1730 (Routledge, 2007).
