Autorentext
Jianfei Zhu teaches Architecture in the Faculty of Architecture, Building and Planning at the University of Melbourne, Australia. He has published on imperial Beijing and modern Chinese architecture. His work explores conditions of space in late imperial and modern China, and searches a possible dialogue between Western social theory and Asian architectural experience.

Zusammenfassung

Chinese Spatial Strategies presents a study of social spaces of the capital of Ming Qing China (1420-1911). Focusing on early Ming and early and middle Qing, it explores architectural, urban and geographical space of Beijing, in relation to issues of history, geopolitics, urban social structure, imperial rule and authority, symbolism, and aesthetic and existential experience. At once historical and theoretical, the work argues that there is a Chinese approach to spatial disposition which is strategic and holistic.
