In the Space of the Gaze: Through Architecture, the Question of the Heritage
Department of Architecture and Urban Studies, Politecnico di Milano
Six palaces in Fujian Province are the instruments to discuss memory, space and time. Built during the 1930s in a country of rural China, they currently go through in a state of abandonment and semi-abandonment: in those years, the small town of Dongda saw the arrival of a new building material: the concrete. Indeed, through migrations and returns, commercial and cultural exchanges in the northern provinces, some local people brought back knowledge and workforces that influenced both building techniques and shapes. The traditional Chinese typology is composed of elements coming from another culture. The scheme of the settlement is therefore hybridized, giving rise to very singular buildings: here the architecture of the village says that a culture made by borders does not exist but rather what exists is the particular and unique dialogue between different ways to intend the building of the city. It is a physical relationship between things, ideas, points of view. The architectural shapes that derive from it speak (in their fixity) about the continuous transformation of culture, here intended in a broad and inclusive sense without losing the important role of place specificity in the space mutation. The author will discuss in the space of the gaze between East and West, observing fragments and traces (rather than boundaries) of the ways of understanding the strict link between heritage and architecture.
