建筑与它所处的时代背景及地域环境密不可分,它是现实世界中的思想观念和社会需求的具体表征。 20世纪初,中国社会正处变革时期,以上海为代表的新型城市发展与现代建筑兴造见证并承载这一重要的历史过程。在这一时期,中国第一代建筑师崭露头角,为中国建筑的现代化发展做出卓越贡献。而“摩登”一词也同样自20世纪初开始成为“现代”的同义词。现代意味着当下、崭新、短暂。每一个当下相较于此前的以往都是全新的,但也很快随着时间的流逝而被后一个当下所取代,从而是短暂的;另一方面,在这一状态中,必然存在着某种能够历经时间而保持恒定的因素,否则就不可能存在具有延续性的历史,也不可能存在我们所能感知到的美。也正因此,曾经的“摩登建筑”才得以成为今日的建筑经典。
 
展览“重返摩登——第一代中国建筑师的住宅设计”,梳理并展示了第一代中国建筑师在衡复历史文化风貌区中的公寓、住宅区与独栋住宅设计; 同时,衡复微空间 (URBANCROSS Gallery) 展厅将作为由上海当代艺术博物馆(PSA)及织城网络(Urban Network Office)联合推出的“摩登漫步”之上海     路线城市行走活动(8/25,9/1,9/15)的出发点,期望通过对建筑与城市的阅读展现中国建筑师在上海城市化进程中不可忽略的重要贡献。

Modern architecture is inevitably bound up with its time and regional context; it is the manifestation of the ideologies and social needs of the real world. The early 20th century saw China undergoing profound changes, an important period witnessed by and embodied in a new type of urban development and the rise of modern architecture, as exemplified by the city of Shanghai. During this period, China's first generation of modern architects emerged and shone, making outstanding contributions to the modernization of Chinese architecture.

On the one hand, modern is present, new, transient; that is, each present is new, compared with the last, but soon replaced by the next as time passes. It is therefore transient. On the other hand, in this being transient, there must be some element that remains immutable over time, for, without which, there can be no history as continued progress, nor beauty as can be perceived.

The exhibition Back to Modern——Residence Designed by the First Generation of Chinese Architects focuses on Residence, the most basic building type in Hengfu Cultural & Historic Area, along with the Modern Roaming theme city walk organized by Power Station of Art and Urban Network Office(8/25,9/1,9/15), let’s explore the charm of the Modern Age and witness the great contribution of Chinese architects during the process of the development of Shanghai.
