1. Liere, Sil van. Cityscapes and the urban environment in contemporary art from China.

Degree: 2016, Leiden University

Today, art from China is very different from that of the 1980s and 1990s. Contemporary Chinese urban art is critical of the modernization China has been experiencing the past decades. It is mostly done in the media of photography, sculpture and installation art. Most obviously this criticism can be seen in the cityscape. This cityscape is most times a pastiche of construction, combining into a vast city. Many installation artists construct such a city by using real cities as model, and they often use consumer items as material. But also many photographers create cityscape montages; they use digital software to combine photographs of the urban space into one big collage. There are five themes that prominently express the artists’ concerns over China’s urbanization: futurism, globalization, negativity, sinification, and disconnection. Artists apply (often several of) these themes onto the urban space they depict. Advisors/Committee Members: Moore, O.J (advisor).

Subjects/Keywords: China; city; urban space; cityscape; contemporary art; urbanization; futurism; globalization; sinification

2. Chen, Sida. Siheyuan: Refurbishing an Auckland Childcare Centre Using Traditional Chinese Courtyard Typologies .

Degree: AUT University

Cities can be alienating places for children. In the fast processes of urbanization children are often deprived of the opportunity to be part of a local social environment. In this study, I use Chinese courtyard spaces as a model for redesigning a rooftop daycare centre in Durham Street, in Auckland CBD. I have developed and presented my design concept for a kindergarten in the form of a visual narrative. I employed a mixed methods approach drawing on aspects of the Design Thinking methodology and visual storytelling. The narrative comic book exhibited as the culmination of this project conveys the social world of children in the courtyard kindergarten, expressing life situations, instead of pure architectural design. This exegesis is divided into five chapters: an introduction, a discussion of siheyuan courtyards and contemporary kindergarten spaces, a discussion of my methodology and methods, an account of my design development, and a conclusion pointing to the outcomes of my research. I hope through this work to demonstrate first, the value of siheyuan for reimagining childcare spaces; and second, the value of narrative techniques for describing living spaces. Advisors/Committee Members: Douglas, Carl (advisor).
