"A Western perception of three heritage rehabilitation cases in China" - Icomos China, 14-16/03/2018

Icomos China - Tsinghua University Beijing, Urban Heritage Rehabilitation in Asia, 14-16 March 2018

The paper covers the perception experience by the author of the three following heritage rehabilitation cases:

  • The Wisdom Temple in Beijing.

This temple complex became successively an electronics factory, a vacant place  and an art gallery with restaurant. All traces of previous uses are clearly recognisable.

  • The Jingdezhen Porcelain Factory.

Part of the Jingdezhen Porcelain City of China, the factory became vacant. Its rehabilitation, as a Beijing Tsinghua Univ. project (Prof Zhang Jie) included the  creation of a porcelain museum, keeping parts of the original kilns.

  • The Jinan lake restoration.

Within the 1000 springs lake, the Eastern park has been restored as a Tsinghua Univ. Project (Prof. Zhang Jie) it includes new canals and streets adorned with works of art and urban furniture.

Legend of the icon: Jinan East Lake.
