Nanjing, China

As a faculty member of the Architectural Newcomers Competition, I was invited to give a lecture at Southeast University in Nanjing to observe the Chinese Architectural Newcomers Competition.

Tree-lined avenues that give the feeling of a historic university

Visit to the Ming Xiao Mausoleum, a World Heritage Site

The scale is different. But it’s not that big.

It is said to be the mausoleum of Emperor Hongwu.

The tunnel that hollowed out the foot of the tomb was quite powerful.

The next day, we went to the former Führer’s Office.

It is a series of gardens and architectural structures of various styles that are well worth seeing.

I would like to thank the Chinese professors for their hospitality and Mr. Liu, a student of Southeast University’s Department of Architecture, for attending to us. It was a great opportunity for us to communicate deeply and happily with architecture as a common language, which will be a source of inspiration for us in the future.
