NCKU Architecture Celebrates 70 Years with Exhibition and Forum
TAINAN, Taiwan --(Business Wire)--
"Towards Seventy Years: National Cheng Kung University (NCKU)
Architecture Exhibition and Forum", an event to commemorate the
achievements and influences of the NCKU Department of Architecture in
Taiwan, took place at the Huashan 1914 Creative Park, Taipei, starting
from September 14 to September 22.
Pride as the oldest department at the university, the event reflected on
the department's contributions in Taiwan's architectural history since
its establishment while looking ahead to possibilities of creating even
more extraordinary records in the future, according to NCKU Architecture
Foundation Director Pau-Sen Chen.
During the opening ceremony of the event, four well-known architects in
Taiwan including Er-Pan Kao, Hsiu-Lian Wang, Ji-Huang Li and Mai Chen,
who were also NCKU alumni, were invited to share their memories at NCKU.
Professor Jang-Chih Wang gave a speech titled "What can NCKU
Architecture still do for Taiwan?" while an exhibition planned by
Professor Shuen Chiou Bo took place during the event to demonstrate
outstanding students' architectural works and domestic award-winning
architectural design works in the past.
The architectural works within NCKU in the past 70 years were also
presented in the exhibition to share with the public the history of
architecture education in Taiwan.
Besides, 5 sessions of forum titled "Cross Generation" organized by
Architect Ching-Haw Chang, inviting people in the architecture field
across three generations to talk about the past and future of Taiwan's
NCKU Alumni Er-Pan Kao dedicated the rapid growth of NCKU Architecture
to the senior students despite the lack of resources during their times,
and wished that the department will contribute even more to Taiwan's
architecture field in the future.
The first Taiwanese post-war female architect Hsiu-Lian Wang, an
outstanding female NCKU alumnus, returned to the university to work as a
teaching assistant right after graduation.
Seeing the many talented people at NCKU who place great importance on
cultural assets has inspired her to collect past students' works in the
department and exhibit them in the event.
The most valuable works of celebrated architects such as Pao-Teh Han,
Zu-Yuan Li, Mai Chen and others at their prime were on display, tracing
the footprints left by their growth and showing their unrestrained
imaginations through their works during that time.
