Public lecture by Professor Ching-yueh Roan
This lecture is the result of the exhibition ‘Illegal Architecture’, held in 2011. As the curator, Roan explored the urban phenomenon of the commonly-seen illegal architecture in Taiwan, and invited Wang Shu of Hangzhou, China, as well as Ying-chun Hsieh of Nantou, Taiwan, to present their built-on-site works of illegal architecture in downtown Taipei.
Professor Ching-yueh Roan received his MA from University of Pennsylvania and is a licensed architect in both United States and Taiwan. He had also operated his own architecture office from 1992-2002 in Taipei. Currently he is teaching at Yuan-Ze University in Taiwan as the Chairperson of Department of Art and Design. Prof. Roan is also the author of more than 30 books mainly published in Taiwan and China regarding both architecture and literature. One of his novels Lin Xiu-Zhi and Her Family was chosen “10 best books written in Chinese of 2004” by Yazhou Zhoukan/ Hong Kong and this novel is also including inside the long list of 2009 Man Asia Literary Prize.
