The Penn-China Landscape Symposium is a series of five biennial events convening leading Chinese and international academics and practitioners on the big issues and research topics in China now. The Talks are hosted by the University of Pennsylvania’s School of Design, beginning in 2015, and will take place biennially at the new Penn Wharton Center (PWCC) in the heart of Beijing.

宾大—中国景观研讨会是由美国宾夕法尼亚大学设计学院主办的系列会议。从2015年开始,将在中国北京的宾大沃顿中心召开,每两年一次,共举办五次。该系列会议旨在召集中国及其他国家的学者和相关从业者,共同探讨当前中国面临的重大学术和现实问题。

The symposia are based on the proposition that in ‘landscape’ we can find matters of pressing cultural, economic and ecological importance to China’s future. China’s historical veneration of landscape and the way in which landscapes are now rapidly changing make this a powerful topic for focused but also wide ranging discourse about China’s transition from an agrarian to urban society in the context of 21st century globalization.

二十一世纪全球化背景下中国正在从农业社会向城市社会转型。该系列研讨会主要讨论景观研究中的文化、经济和生态命题对中国未来发展的重要性。研讨会从景观视角出发,力求对相关命题进行更广泛的延伸。中国传统文化对景观的尊崇以及中国日新月异的景观变化,都使得本研讨会非常有意义。

“Coordinates,” the first of five Penn-China Landscape Symposia will take place on the 13th of March at the PWCC in Beijing, from 1 pm to 6 pm. This introductory symposium is intended to bring a small but prominent group of leading academics and practitioners from across China together with representatives from PennDesign.

The question the introductory symposium will address is: “What are the most important ecological and cultural pressures facing the future of Chinese cities, and how can landscape architects, architects, urban designers and preservationists engage these issues in significant ways?”

首届宾大中国景观研讨会将于2015年三月十三日下午一点至六点在宾大沃顿中心召开。此次研讨会意在促进中国和宾大设计学院的业界精英相互了解和交流。主要讨论问题为:中国城市在未来将面临的最重要的生态和文化压力是什么?景观建筑师、建筑师、城市设计师和城市保护主义者如何在解决这些问题时更有效的发挥他们的作用?

The question is intentionally very general so as to enable wide-ranging discussion on the occasion of the first symposium. The purpose of the first symposium is to establish the coordinates for the entire series of symposia. It will provide a snapshot of major issues toward which research efforts should be directed and also help clarify the themes and the organizational strategy for the following four symposia.

首届研讨会提出的景观议题比较常规以方便参会者展开广泛的讨论。本次研讨会的主要目的是为整个系列研讨会构建“坐标”系统,提出问题核心纲要, 点明关键课题研究方向,同时为以后四次研讨会的选题和组织方式提供概览。

The introductory symposium will be structured as an open forum or think tank with a core group invited to make brief inspirational verbal and visual presentations following which discussion will be opened to all the delegates.

首届研讨会将以开放论坛和集体智库的形式展开,届时受邀相关与会者做简明系列演讲,与此同时提供所有与会者一个开放讨论平台。
