Cultural Transmission of New China: Embracing Traditional Culture with Contemporary Architecture

Architects should know their cultural roots and incorporate local traditions and culture.” Liang Sicheng, the father of modern Chinese architecture, tersely lamented in the past, but now it has become the unswerving pursuit and vision of CSCEC LAND. How to make contemporary architecture embrace traditional culture and reshape China with contemporary aesthetics is the direction that CIIC has been exploring and practising over the years.

“As a central enterprise, CSCEC LAND has the responsibility, ability and willingness to carry the banner of cultural renaissance.” Taking the Tang style and Song rhyme as its base, CSCEC LAND combines the pinnacle representatives of thousands of years of traditional Chinese culture in terms of craftsmanship level, artistic aesthetics, and lifestyle with contemporary craftsmanship and practical needs, and successfully creates one after another acclaimed and popular cultural real estate works through the contemporary translation of learning from the past and not sticking to the past. In the near future, CSCEC LAND will also make traditional culture integrated into architecture and life in terms of ancient building protection, CSCEC LAND of traditional architectural research, and cultural scene innovation.

Renewing a More Beautiful China: The Path of Cultural Housing Officially Launched

A cultural real estate practice film, “Transmitting New and More Beautiful China”, reproduces every aspect of cultural residential development of CSCEC LAND. Since the launch of the first cultural real estate work CSCEC LAND in 2020, China Construction Wisdom has insisted on non-standardised design and the concept of cultural residential camping that learns from the past but does not stick to the past, which has also become the source of inspiration for the brand’s continuous innovation in the field of cultural real estate.

“Building a home is not only about building a place to live in, but also about creating a home for emotions and a container for spiritual support, and culture is the best carrier to support emotions.” The vice president of CSCEC LAND, Wang Qiong, in his speech “Cultural Housing in China,” shared the company’s practice stories in Tang and Song cultural housing through the examples of China Construction Chenyuan and Beijing Guoxian Mansion, illustrating the company’s deep respect and meticulous research aimed at authentically restoring Tang and Song aesthetics from the two dimensions of French building and gardening.

Whether it is the inheritance and innovation of the proportion of openings, building components and traditional patterns in architecture, or the translation and reproduction of poems and paintings, urban mountains and forests, and the four seasons of living and travelling in the garden, CSCEC LAND has always been respecting and researching in order to realise the pure restoration of the aesthetics of the Tang and Song dynasties. In order to make the works stand up to cultural scrutiny, CIIC, on the basis of the original traceability, translation, and transmission of the new, joined hands with the China Construction Association to commemorate the establishment of a research organisation on traditional Chinese architecture, the Zhi Research Society, so that the beauty of traditional Chinese architecture will continue to move forward in the transmission of the heart and hand to hand.
