State Key Laboratory of Subtropical Building Science  


South China University of Technology subtropical building research started at the beginning of the last century, is China's colleges and universities in the field of architecture "old eight" one. In the 1950s, Professor Xia Chang Shi, Professor Chen Boqi and other older scientists gathered to create a subtropical building research room. Into the sixties and seventies, to Lin Keming, Feng Bingquan, Long Qingzhong, Lin Qibei, Tan Tian Song, Fu Luo Fei, as a representative of a group had studied in Europe, the United States, Japan, well-known experts and professors inherit and carry forward our construction The field of realism academic tradition, the building of natural cooling, ventilation, moisture, ancient building lightning protection, flood control, shock, etc. launched a design theory and methods of exploration, the southern region of architectural education, architectural design practice and the formation of Lingnan architectural style Has made great contributions, and gradually formed a rigorous, pragmatic and innovative research ideas and professional education characteristics, have a greater impact in the country, in the domestic architectural education sector enjoys a high academic status.

After decades of construction and development, our school architecture has become the country, especially in southern China, an important base for education and scientific research for the country and local training a large number of solid professional quality of the architectural disciplines, gave birth to Mo Bozhi, She Junnan, Yu Bai Sheng, Zhang Youqi, He Jingtang, Wu Shuoxian and other six academicians and Yuan Peihuang, Li Tuo Fen, Zhao Zuwang, Rao Weicun, Ni Yang and other eleven national engineering survey and design master. In 1978, the State approved the establishment of the Ministry of Education, the Ministry of Education, the Ministry of Education, the Ministry of Education, the Ministry of Education, the Ministry of Education, the Ministry of Education, the Ministry of Education, the Ministry of Education, the Ministry of Education, As the core, integration of acoustics, optics, transportation, environmental science and engineering, materials science, information technology, urban sociology and other interdisciplinary, approved by the Ministry of Science and Technology to establish the State Key Laboratory of Subtropical Building Science, the same year in September through the construction plan feasible Proof, officially launched in November, in June 2010 through the Ministry of Science and Technology acceptance, in March 2013 through the Ministry of Science and Technology assessment, is the country's national construction of the only national key laboratories.

Laboratory existing architectural design science, construction technology science, construction technology and other three experimental centers, under the modern architectural creation, eco-city and green building, digital technology, traditional architectural culture and protection, building thermal environment and building energy efficiency, construction Sound and light environment, efficient and green engineering, engineering structure disaster prevention and mitigation, engineering structure life monitoring and management, coastal soft soil underground structure, urban and rural environmental engineering sub-laboratory 11 sub-laboratory. With the international advanced level of scientific research equipment 1285 Taiwan (sets), the total value of 116.92 million yuan. Of which more than 300,000 yuan of scientific research equipment 83 (sets). The total laboratory area of nearly 20,000 square meters. There are 81 fixed researchers in the laboratory, including 2 academicians, 3 Distinguished Professors from the Yangtze River Scholar, 2 from the National Science Fund for Distinguished Young Scientists, 2 from the National Talent Project, and the National Survey and Design Master 4, the Ministry of Education of the new century talent 7, Guangdong Province, Zhujiang scholars distinguished professor 3, Guangdong Province, "thousands of talent project" national training object 3, the provincial training object 7, school-level training object 23 people. There are five postdoctoral stations in architecture, urban and rural planning, landscape architecture, civil engineering, and mechanics and so on.

The main research work of the laboratory is closely related to the major needs of the national economic and social development. According to the background of the construction and urbanization of the well-off society in our country, we focus closely on the overall goal of ecological livable urban and rural planning and green building. Construction and civil engineering disciplines in the field of international and domestic development trends, highlighting the subtropical regional characteristics, from the ecological livable urban and rural planning and design theory, building physical environment and energy conservation, disaster prevention and mitigation, ecological environment and other aspects of collaborative research to explore the building science And engineering in the field of major scientific and technical issues, achieved a high level of independent innovation results, and promote China and the international related areas of technological progress. The core research directions include: ① subtropical space environment and architectural design; ② subtropical building physical environment and building energy efficiency; ③ subtropical building structure and disaster prevention and mitigation.

In recent years, under the strong support of the school "211 Project" and "985 Project", the State Key Laboratory of Subtropical Building Science, under the leadership of Academician He Xunxian and Academician Wu Shuoxian, has a large number of young and middle-aged academic leaders to stand out in scientific research and team building , Discipline construction, personnel training and other aspects of laboratory construction have made considerable progress and rapid development of social awareness and influence has been greatly improved, showing a very good leap forward development momentum. Since 2013 has undertaken various types of scientific research projects 379, of which 43 provincial and ministerial level projects, scientific research contract total funding of more than 41.58 million yuan; published academic papers 640, of which three index included 336; monographs and textbooks 20; Application or authorization of 149 patents; access to provincial and ministerial level scientific research awards 68, including 25 scientific and technological awards (including the National Science and Technology Progress Award 2, the 16th China Patent Award 1, Guangdong Science and Technology Outstanding Contribution Award 1, the provincial and ministerial level science and technology award first prize 5, second prize 3, third prize 3), architectural planning and design field of various types of awards 35 (including national awards 3, Ministerial awards 35).

"Twelve Five" period, the laboratory will rely on the unit of South China University of Technology leadership and strong support, give full play to scientific research and personnel training advantages, combined with their own construction tasks, collaborative innovation as a laboratory development of basic ideas, Development, to promote the development of innovation, as soon as possible to achieve the transformation of scientific research, national and local economic construction services. Through 5 to 10 years of construction, the laboratory into a domestic first-class, in the international community has a greater impact and competitiveness of the basic scientific research base of applied science, high-quality scientific and technological personnel training base, building science and technology culture heritage and innovation base and Academic exchange base.
