  • 中國建築美學史——先秦至兩漢:臺榭乘虛×殉葬建屋×天圓地方,從個人德性的彰顯到鬼神信仰的推展

    by 王耘 ...
    林語堂:「最好的建築是這樣的,我們身處在其中,卻不知道自然在哪裡終了,藝術在哪裡開始。」樹屋穴居 × 干欄式建築 × 宮殿臺榭從生存本能的滿足,延伸至華夏精神的藝術展現建築,不只是休憩居住之所,更是美善心性的孕育之處【起初不打算讓人居住的中國古建築】就中國古代建築文化的源頭而言,建築的核心詞,是「宅」。何謂「宅」?它在甲骨文裡,與後代所指的「住宅」含義並不相同。就卜辭而言,學者指出:「這種宅絕不是一般的住宅。結合宅所從的乇為祭名來看,則宅應為祭祀場所。」這意味著,宅非民宅,宅有祭神之用——起碼就其原型來看,提供給予人居住之所不是「宅」的主要功能。【先秦時期的諸子百家如何看待建築?】先秦時期的建築多由貴族建造,因此,士人對建築的審美功能的批判,實際上更接近階級、道德層面的批判,而不一定是針對建築本身。孔子:一個有誠信的君子,不應該居... ...
