Modern Architectural Transformation-in Xiamen Concession(1840-1930) 廈門的租界與建築變遷之研究(1840-1930年)





Traditionalism or Classism is always inseparable from the development of architecture no matter West or East. For instance, the Renaissance and Neo-Classism both were representation of Classism in west. In Asia, The new architecture was concerned with traditional style that has borne hundreds of years ago and brought rather particular cultural phenomenon through Imperialism and colonial influence. First, we would review semi-colonial Xiamen’s architecture and urbanism from the perspective of the third world history vis-à-vis that of the world history, with emphasis on the genealogy of the colonial architecture and urbanism in the late 18th and the 19th centuries. Second, through a comparative study with some recent research on British and French colonies, we would demonstrate the difference between them and research on Chinese modern architecture and urbanism. Following that, a comparative study among different concessions, we would show not only the commonality of semi-colonial architecture and urbanism among them but also the colonial specificity of Imperialism. Finally, we would attempt to survey the architectural discourse concerning the historical consciousness and the attitude of historical interpretation. Further, we would reveal the problematic structuring the liner connection and lineage of symbolic space by querying disseminated architectural value in the conjuncture.
