Zhu Pei delivered a lecture in the Fall 2018 Lecture Series at Rhode Island School of Design
On Oct.4th 2018, Mr. Zhu Pei was invited to deliver an academic lecture entitled “Root：Rediscovery of Jingdezhen Contemporary” at Rhode Island School of Design. Mr. Zhu focused on sharing the experience and research findings obtained from the design and construction process of the Imperial Kiln Museum in Jingdezhen. He said:"Searching for cultural roots and creating new experiences are two important clues for me when thinking about architecture. On the one hand, architecture can be rooted in a certain environment and soil. On the other hand, building with an open system can accommodate more new possibilities. I think architecture in a certain region must have its roots based on nature and culture. This is the design strategy adopted by the Imperial Kiln Museum. The whole design is to coordinate the relationship between the site environment and the internal and external environment of the architecture, resulting in the constant experience of moving between the internal and external. The Imperial Kiln Museum is still under construction and is expected to be completed by the end of this year.
