600 Years of Urban Planning and Development In and Around Tianjin, 1404-2004

Ed./Corp.: Wason Collection on East Asia, Kroch Library, Cornell University,
Ithaca, NY, USA.
URL: http://wason.library.cornell.edu/Tianjin/
Language: English.

Self description: "[...] With the largest body of foreign architecture
preserved on Chinese soil today, Tianjin represents a text book case
regarding the political dimensions of colonial architecture, urban planning
and the socio-economic relations between the East and the West. It was home
to important historical figures, such as the last emperor of China (Pu Yi),
or former President Herbert Hoover, who was stationed in Tianjin (together
with the future First Lady) as an army engineer in 1899/1900; or the famous
scholar Liang Qichao. [...] The exhibit aims to show how Tianjin developed
as a colonial, urban "collage city" of very diverse style and orientation;
how the various parts and pieces (nine tenth of them of foreign extraction)
defined themselves architecturally and socially; and how the parts
constituted a functioning whole which dominated most of the economic and
cultural landscape of Northern China for almost 100 years."
