MORE ABOUT THE EVENT: The pagoda forms an integral component of China’s incredibly rich architectural heritage. Scattered all across the country in many different forms, shapes, and sizes, these evocative structures have a history stretching back 2,500 years. But what actually is a pagoda? And how many of them are left? The answers might surprise you. Isaac Duffy will introduce Chinese pagodas with a brief history and explain his team’s ongoing efforts to create the world’s first online pagoda museum and archive. The team plans to visit, document, and photograph every historic pagoda in China — and is giving RASBJan exclusive sneak preview into “The Pagoda Project” before its upcoming public launch.
MORE ABOUT THE SPEAKER: Isaac Duffy is an amateur art historian whose interest lies in heritage protection and conservation. He previously spent a year working in the Western Himalayas on the Matho Monastery Museum Project: helping restore and preserve a 600-year old Buddhist Monastery’s art collection and build an onsite museum. He has now lived in Beijing for two years, during which he has become particularly interested in traditional Chinese architecture.
