On the afternoon of May 8, 2017, Professor Liu Jiaping, the Chinese Academy of Engineering, the director of the Green Building R & D Center of Xi'an University of Architecture and Technology, and Dean of the School of Architecture, Xi'an University of Architecture and Technology, gave an lecture on New Regional Architecture Research and Practice at the International Reporting Hall of Liwu Science and Technology Building, South China University of Architecture, which attracted nearly 600 audiences from our school and other universities in Guangdong.

Prof. LIU analyzed the difference between the regional and the new regional architecture, as well as the regionalism and critical regionalism. Then, he took the example with hot summer cold winter climate and South Island reef building which is in the extreme hot and humid climate zone for examples to explain the characteristics of the above areas in different areas, as well as the characteristics of these areas, which should be considered during architecture design, including the theories and methods of shock-proof design, low energy consumption design, structural design, tectonic design, energy system design, environmental control system design and so on. Prof. LIU explained the profound theories in a simple way which benefited the teachers and students a lot.
