In our architectural education, there always exists the problem that structure, construction and architectural design are taught separately, thus resulting that the form of architecture do not involve structure, construction and materials. Since "construction" becomes a trend in recent years, the surface presentation features resulting from construction is pursued as a new "form" in the design circle. However, "surface" is to express the architectural content in nature. This salon invites industry experts and architects to discuss on relevant topics such as how to rebuild the architectural design and structure, construction and materials in education and practice; and how to understand the content of contemporary architecture conveyed by surface form, etc.
