Product Description

A History of Chinese Architecture 

Liang Sicheng 梁思成 

Chinese ONLY Edition 

中国建筑史

Liang Sicheng (Chinese: 梁思成; 20 April 1901 – 9 January 1972) was a Chinese architect and scholar, often known as the father of modern Chinese architecture. His father, Liang Qichao, was one of the most prominent Chinese scholars of the early 20th century. His wife was the architect and poet Lin Huiyin. His younger brother, Liang Siyong, was one of China's first archaeologists.

Liang authored the first modern history on Chinese architecture, and he was the founder of the Architecture Department of Northeastern University in 1928 and Tsinghua University in 1946. He was the Chinese representative of the Design Board which designed the United Nations headquarters in New York City. He, along with wife Lin Huiyin, Mo Zongjiang, and Ji Yutang, discovered and analyzed the first and second oldest timber structures still standing in China, located at Nanchan Temple and Foguang Temple at Mount Wutai.

He is recognized as the “Father of Modern Chinese Architecture”. Princeton University, which awarded him an honorary doctoral degree in 1947, issued a statement praising him as “a creative architect who has also been a teacher of architectural history, a pioneer in historical research and exploration in Chinese architecture and planning, and a leader in the restoration and preservation of the priceless monuments of his country.”

《中国建筑史》是1944年完成的,当时对中国建筑的研究尚处于起步的阶段。对古建筑的实地调查也仅仅限于l932——1937年这短短的5年时间。在这样短的时间里,要弄清中国建筑两千年来发展的历史源流,梳理清楚其发展脉络,自然只能先从主流建筑人手,这就是为什么此书内容侧重于宫殿庙宇(即重点在大木作)。而对中国建筑中极富特色的园林,丰富多彩的民居基本没有论及。此书完成后,先生深感建筑史尚需深入的课题还很多。但当时正是抗战胜利,军兴以还,各地城市摧毁已甚,失地收复之后,立即有复兴焦土的艰巨工作随之而至,所需人才当以万计,当务之急是为国家造就建设人才,首先是建筑师。今后数十年,国家建设实有待于此辈人才之养成。因此他到清华大学创办了建筑系,建筑史的研究只得暂缓进行。
