University Affiliation

Ying Wang obtained her Ph.D. in architecture from the University of Leuven in Belgium, focusing on the shifting understandings of style in twentieth-century architectural discourse in China. She published her book The Search for a Chinese Style: The Conception of Style in Early Modern Chinese Architecture (探求一种“中国式样”:早期现代中国建筑中的风格观念, 2015). She is a research fellow in the research group on “contemporary Chinese architecture and urban culture” at Tongji University. Her study makes a comparison between China and the West in terms of the theory and historiography of architecture, and seeks to relocate twentieth-century Chinese architectural discourses in a global context. During her stay at Harvard-Yenching Institute, she will work on an anthology of architectural literature in twentieth-century China.
