The Invisible Architecture

Event Information
Theme: The Invisible Architecture
Time: 19:00-21:00, May 7th, Saturday
Place: YANJIYOU (CapitaLand Tianfu) Arc-shaped Lecture Hall
Floor 4, CapitaLand Tianfu, No. 388 Tianren Road, High-Tech Zone, Chengdu
成都市高新区天仁路388号凯德天府4楼言几又(凯德天府店)弧形演讲厅

Unlike the Europeans, we cannot see so many ancient buildings in our neighborhood when we were young. The magnificent Gothic cathedrals, the breathtaking ancient Greek ruins, and the houses of old age are all silent forms of art that integrate music themselves. Similarly, unlike the Japanese, we cannot experience a charismatic oriental ancient town such as Kyoto and Nara, where people can perceive and feel the history and culture through the expansion of the veins of city and architecture.

What about us? The earliest Tang Dynasty wooden architecture can only be scarcely found in Shanxi Province with tribute to the efforts of architect Liang Sicheng and his wife Lin Huiyin during the 20th century in the flames of war. Our ancient towns have been tore down to small hubs such as Pingyao and Lijiang. Even these two treasured hubs of ancient towns are commercialized beyond recognition. Furthermore, we don't even have an atmosphere of architectural education. Till now, most people cannot distinguish architects and civil engineers, and they do not know that architects ever use pencils to sketch.
Because we choose to neglect architecture, so it truly becomes invisible to us. Actually, what you see around are just buildings, while what you do not see is the real architecture.
Today, let us expose ourselves to the "Invisible Architecture".

About Train Tickets to Tibet

Hi everybody,

After moving to Chengdoo, I suddenly became attracted by the leisure lifestyles here. So I rented an apartment and am deciding to make a trip to an ajacent state, Tibet in May.

I got some relevant info on line via http://www.easy-tibettravel.com that renders detailed train info.

But purchasing the first class tickets seems to be harsh so far.

—Is there anyone who've taken a train trip to Tibet and could offer me some experience?

Thanks.

-Aike

They have recently brought about false drug related charges and serously violated the rights and career reputation of one of their foreign teachers too. PLEASE DO NOT INVOLVE YOURSELF OR FRIENDS WITH THIS CRIMINAL ORGANIZATION. Also if you wish to contact myself or a number of other former teachers/parents of this school VERTIGO to corroborate the above please feel free to contact me.

I'm looking to share rent with 1 or 2 other roommates; male or female, whatever nationality, as long as you're friendly and trustworthy. I'd like a room that's not too noisy or stinky or dirty. Actually the common areas (living room, wc, kitchen) weigh as or more heavily on my decision than my own personal room. I am willing to contribute ¥1400-¥1600/month provided the value is there. I can sign up to a year. Close to renminnanlu is preferred, but I'm willing to be flexible on location if the apartment is a super screamin' good deal :1
