Architecture

Architecture is about providing appropriate shelters for human functions and activities through a comprehensive understanding of our living environment, our society and culture, our history and technology. The aim is to provide sustainable future for the next generation.

Learning architecture allows us to explore the intrinsic relationship between people, culture and city systematically. Research into the site context, building functions, and statutory constrains to provide a solution by developing an architectural design through a process of conceptualization and rationalization which echoes the past and forecast the future in a meaningful way.

We offer a broad range of architecture courses from award-bearing courses providing students with the foundation to study architecture at the tertiary level, to interest courses on architecture and design-related topics and technical courses on the practice of architecture.

這課程重點是導引大家去了解日本建築的藝術及其禪的內涵。日本有世界最古的木建築寺廟,為七世纪聖德太子由中國傳入,禪宗亦在當時傳入,其佛性思想實與聖德太子講釋佛經的如來藏思想同源。枯山水庭園是大將軍幕府年代的禪師傑作,恰似禪宗公案,其深義如密宗壇城。茶室則代表禪宗把修持融入生活的體現。及至現代日本建築,其清水混凝土表現出的現代簡略主義,更充滿文化色彩及禪宗韻味。本課程系列包含禪宗傳入日本的歷史、建築及其佛性思想。
