Exhibition Profile

The presented some 400 pieces of sketches, manuscripts, early prints and images, are only a small part of Liang Sicheng's works. His works and notes could once pilled up and filled his room, but some of them were regrettably destroyed or lost during the turbulent years. However, people can still look back to the master's life by looking at the square table on which he used to fiddle with his camera, the round table of the University of Pennsylvania, the Cartridge paper at UPenn, and the rice paper in Li Zhuang. Through these exhibits, visitors can see how the master hums a tune with a vase under his chin to support his head while drawing on paper.
 
This exhibition has 5 sections, demonstrating Liang Sicheng's life from a student to a scholar. He was an architect, a preserver of ancient architecture, an urban planning expert and an educator. The exhibition shows the diligence Liang Sicheng paid to be a precursor in the field of architecture, and more importantly, the incomparable joy that supported and guided him in his life.
