'Urban Ecologies' - a Projects' Conversation Between Vicente Guallart and Yu Kongjian

Date: Nov 3 - Dec 22 - 10 am

Venue: Instituto Cervantes, Beijing

The exhibition brings together two masters in urban design from Spain and China to exchange the ideology and practices of urban ecologies in China and worldwide. Vicente Guallart and Yu Kongjian will maintain a dialogue about their concept of design, the urban planning and their integration in a growth model that minimizes the environmental impact. The modernity of the early twentieth century was an explosion of ideas that provided new horizons to architecture and its use of materials and sculptural forms. Although some trends developed without practically any contact with the nature, many architects began to worry about how the new architecture could create a symbiosis with nature. Thus was born sustainable architecture. Vicente Guallart and Yu Kongjian are part of this contemporary and essential way to conceive the design. Both founded their own advanced education program to use education as research and innovation engine to the projects to bring positive impacts to the city making. Vicente Guallart is founder and principal of Guallart Architects, founder of IAAC (Institute of Advanced Architecture of Catalonia) and former chief architect of Barcelona. Yu Kongjian is founder and principal of Turenscape, Dean of School of Landscape Architecture, Peking University.

'Napoleon' Special Exhibition

Date: Nov 3-Feb 28 - 10 am

Venue: Shanghai Himalayas Museum

Biggest Napoleon Collection is showing up in Shanghai. Shanghai Himalayas Museum, joint with Chalencon Collection, is bringing "Napoleon" to the public on Oct 27. This special exhibition is co-curated by Shen Qibin, Board Chairman of Shanghai Himalayas Museum, and Dr Bernard Chevallier, the global Napoleon expert who once served as the curator of Chateau de Fontainebleau. It tells a story that explores an over-50-year period of Napoleon's legendary life, in which he, beginning as a teenage from Corsica, was first crowned Emperor in France and finally exiled to Saint Helena, and had love affairs with his two wives Josephine de Beauharnais and Maria Luise von Osterreich. The story is narrated along with strongly contrasting contemporary artworks, and gives a comprehensive and realistic presentation of Napoleon's rich, exciting life experience. The exhibition includes as many as 185 important antiques such as paintings and sculptures created for Napoleon, his manuscripts and writings, clothes, precious ornaments, furniture, and daily or military necessities. This is the largest Napoleon collection in scale ever exhibited in Shanghai. Napoleon Bonaparte was an elite that emerged from the 18th century French Revolution, which saw a historical tide that called for freedom, equality and democracy and revolted against feudalism. With his extraordinary military talent, enchanting personality and outstanding leadership, he started as a member of a declining aristocratic family on the island of Corsica and then leapt to become Emperor of the First French Empire, and fought back the Anti-France Alliances formed by Britain, Russia, Prussia and others for several times.
