Master thesis Architecture: research on Wuxi's industrial heritage (China): which future for Maoxin site?

1,409 views

Published on

The thesis is a part of an on-going academic research promoted by the cooperation between Interdepartmental Research Center Urban/Eco (University Federico II of Naples, Italy) and the School of design (Jiangnan University, Wuxi, China). The thesis argues about the evolution of the historical city centre of Wuxi, hand in hand with the industrial development, to understand the conversion process and necessary strategies required to install new architectural programme within the existing industrial sites, recognizing their unique conditions. Embracing multi-scaled approach, the thesis proposes new landscape chances of uses by putting the remains of industrial cores in a network that constitutes a clustering of art, history, leisure and entertainment. Among them, more attention is given to Taibaodun area, main industrial core of Wuxi, and Maoxin site, the former industrial site of Taibaodun area.

Touring along the canal, you experience its past thriving from dotted cities along with its waterlines. The fourth largest freshwater lake in China. The lake is surrounded by two cities of Jiangsu, Suqian and Huai’an, and its northwest part borders Anhui Province. The Yangtze River, the longest in China and the third longest in the world, cuts through the heart of the country marking the division of China into north and south both geographically and culturally. This cut also divides Jiangsu into two parts, the north and the south of the province. Lake Taihu is the third largest freshwater lake in China. The lake is linked by the Grand Canal in the northwest and separates Wuxi City into two halves flanking its north and most of western and eastern part.

  24. 24. //citycentre//industry Plentiful cultural heritages emerged in Chinese history during the last thousands years, which include industrial heritage reflecting four specialties: (1) many industrial heritages (exactly, technological heritages) arose in the agricultural civilization; (2) industrial heritages in 1850s-1949 were branded by semi-feudal & semi-colony; (3) national industrial heritages in 1850s-1949 are the essence of Chinese Industrial Heritage; (4) industrial heritages in 1949-1970s are facing technological renewal or replacement now. On April 18, the 2006 International Day of Monuments and Sites held “Industrial Heritage Day”, National Cultural Heritage Bureau of China and ICOMOS China held the Meeting for Protecting Industrial Heritage in China in one modern industrial town along the Grant Canal, Wuxi City, Jiangsu Province, over 60 scholars, heritage site managers and officers attended the conference, discussed and proposed the “Wuxi Recommendation” - the first chartered document for protecting industrial heritage in China. The Meeting marks that the protection of industrial heritage in China has started new steps. The third general investigation of cultural heritage over the whole country will be carried out in the near future. In the plan of the investigation, industrial heritage is the important category for being surveyed. On the way for protecting industrial heritage, comparing the developed countries such as UK, France, USA, Germany, Australia etc., the starting step in China delayed about 40 years, but the pace will be faster and faster. “WUXIRECOMMENDATION” the first chartered document for protecting industrial heritage in China industrial heritage is the important category for BEINGSURVEYED QUE WEIMIN The World Heritage Research Center, Peking University Bullettin TICCIH number 32 spring, 2006 national industrial heritages in 1850-1949are the essence of Chinese Industrial Heritage
