For more than 500 years, the Chinese Empire was ruled from behind the deep crimson walls of Beijing’s Forbidden City, which was the home of the Emperor and his imperial court. The design of this city-within-a-city reflects China’s philosophical and religious traditions, as well as deep beliefs about man and nature. This year marks the 600th anniversary of its completion in 1420 during the Ming Dynasty. Join us on October 28 for a discussion of the meaning behind its architecture, and its impact on Chinese architecture today. This event is part of Archtober, the AIA Center for Architecture’s tenth-annual festival of architecture activities, programs and exhibitions taking place during the month of October.
