Chinese Urban Architecture and Japan - A Modern History of Principal Selective Acceptance
Project Leader: Xu Subin

Award: First Prize for Writing Award

Academic Value and Influence:
The new theoretical explorations on the basis of previous studies to evaluate the influence of foreign technology on Chinese cities and architecture in modern history emphasize the significant and potential impact of nationalism. The research sufficiently reveals that it is nationalism that was the essential motive for China to actively learn foreign technologies and promote the development of cities and architecture in modern history. It also demonstrates that China, rather than any other actor, was the principal promoter of the development of cities and architecture in the semi-colonial period. The writing describes the relations between Chinese and Japanese urban architecture from various viewpoints on the basis of multiple disciplines.
