[memory] architecture can be read: through time, explore this “boat” type centenary building on Huaihai Road


On the middle Huaihai Road with heavy traffic, there is a hundred year old building that is quiet in the midst of trouble

.

Overlooking from the air, it is like a ship moored in the green waves

.

The building, which is only separated by a wall from the folk house, stands deep in the courtyard

.

Soong Ching Ling once lived here and is now open to the public as a memorial

.

What are the characteristics of this building after a hundred years? What is the current situation? Today, let’s explore ↓ the main building of the building itself is a white fake three storey European style building with a garden

.

It was built in 1920 with a total construction area of about 700 square meters

.

The first floor is the living room and dining room, and the East and west sides are the study

.

The second floor is bedroom, office, typing room, etc

.

It covers an area of about 483 square meters in the west of the main building, which was built for the staff in 1953

.

It has been open to the public since May 1988

.

The earliest owner of this small building designed the building as a ship

.

The fireplace chimney extending out of the roof is designed as a ship ventilation tube, and the indoor windows and blinds are engraved with the patterns of sailboats and iron anchors

.

In front of the main building, the garden of more than 2200 square meters is surrounded by more than 30 century old camphor trees, which are verdant and green all year round

.

According to the principle of “repairing the old as before and preserving its truth”, the former residence of Soong Ching Ling completed three comprehensive repairs in 1990, 2006 and 2018

.

The recent repair mainly solved the problems of inclination and uneven settlement of the main building and the inclination of the auxiliary building

.

At the same time, the renovation project also focuses on the maintenance and repair of the indoor space pattern, decoration style, material and technology of the main building according to the original appearance, supporting and upgrading the air conditioning system, security weak current and auxiliary facilities in the hospital, so as to better realize the effective management and rational utilization of the former residence, and effectively protect and continue its authenticity and integrity

.

In the process of building facade repair, we have faced the problem – which age is it restored? The exterior wall of the building was originally made of soft stone

.

During Soong Ching Ling’s residence, the exterior wall was painted with a layer of cement slurry

.

The most historic stage of the building is the period when Soong Ching Ling lived here

.

Therefore, the staff decided to retain a layer of cement slurry during the repair and restore it to the era when historical figures lived here, rather than the early stage of construction

.

Soong Ching Ling cultural relics museum the newly displayed “the hand is as new as the past – Soong Ching Ling cultural relics collection exhibition” selects more than 280 precious cultural relics in the collection to tell Soong Ching Ling’s “memory of home and feelings of the country”

.

Many precious cultural relics in the exhibition hall are on public display for the first time

.

Here are Soong Ching Ling’s clothes, recipes, holiday cards given to each other with friends, and interesting art collections

.

The restaurant on the first floor of the building clock in point is in a corner of the restaurant, with some souvenirs of that year, bearing the host’s nostalgia for his alma mater and nostalgia for his relatives

.

The rattan furniture placed in the bedroom on the second floor has a unique design

.

They have been with the owner for more than half a century

.

On the memorial square of Soong Ching Ling’s former residence, there is a full-body seated statue carved to commemorate the 110th anniversary of Soong Ching Ling’s birth

.

This statue is carved from a whole piece of white marble with exquisite carving techniques and lifelike characters

.
