Old Pond

Old Tangqi is my favorite. It is not only the first stop for me to walk out of my hometown, but also the place I am dreaming about. In the spring of 1970, at the age of 14, I took a ship from Zhangshan to Tangqi Middle School to study. Tangqi was in the east of my hometown. The ship was heading towards the rising direction of the sun, but the deep cabin blocked my sight which was not long. In the whistle, I didn’t know that when the ship slowly approached the dock, a big circle had been drawn and the bow of the ship turned west. It was just because of such a small change that I had a thinking barrier to Tangqi’s sense of direction since then. I always felt that Chaoshan was in the north of Tangqi, for example, the black and blue Zhangshan mountain in my hometown is in the north of my home, and there is no doubt that Shuibei Street is in the South. At that time, Tangqi was still a veritable old Tangqi. The same type of architecture in Ming and Qing dynasties, and from Tangqi Middle School to the street, as long as we walk through the playground, Tangqi theater and a short road to the road, we can enter the Tangqi block like a corridor bridge. This was the first and the deepest impression that old Tangqi gave me: walking in the street, I could not get the sun or rain. The uniqueness of old Tangqi also lies in those lanes which are short or long, bright or dark, quiet or noisy, wide or narrow, curved or straight, exposed or secluded, it is said that there are as many as 72 and a half. I didn’t count whether it was accurate or not, and it should be more than that in my impression, because at that time I went to my classmate’s home in the town, and almost every home was in the alley. There were several door openings on both sides of a secluded Long Alley, and I walked into any one, either the patio or the hall, or the three-in-three-in-five-in-five-in-one carved high-wall old house made me small instantly. The old Tangqi architecture shows some kind of introverted, closed and even once-for-all ideological tendency of Tangqi people. It is a world of Qin brick and Han tile walls. Its overall layout, space setting, functional Division focuses on the internal requirement of living in peace between others and themselves and not committing crimes against each other, which meets the psychological needs of Chinese people to be conservative, precautionary and harmonious to some extent, it also seems to be the same as the orientation of self-cultivation of self-protection and inner peace. Seen from the outside, old Tangqi seems to have no single buildings with special impact, blocks and alleys, all of which seem familiar. This may be the characteristics of old Tangqi buildings, such as Chinese traditional paintings, its focus is on the picture full of artistic conception, which does not pay much attention to the volume, modeling and perspective effect of a single building, but often devotes itself to taking individual buildings as units, group effect extending on plane and space. It seems that there is no famous garden like Suzhou in old Tangqi, but I think the Tangqi itself at that time was a huge garden architecture. The quiet dongxiaohe, xixiaohe and Shihe divide Tangqi into several areas. Rows of benches called beauties depend on the bank built by stones, and stone bridges one after another on the river, it presents a kind of graceful and graceful state, and the microwave is weak. Bridge and River, dock and boat, Eaves and beauty, are a kind of static and dynamic complement each other, is the reflection of old pond habitat loose and clear, quiet and elegant, it highlights the humanistic temperament of the old Tangqi which is clear and natural, transformed and coordinated, and expresses the artistic conception of the old Tangqi feeling and scenery meeting, meaning and image. Just like Chinese landscape paintings, what they show is charm, spirit and implication. More than 40 years have passed quickly. When people today after more than 40 years are like me, recalling the old Tangqi that has passed away, a new Tangqi is growing rapidly. As a pilot of small city construction, Tangqi is welcoming its another glory with unprecedented enthusiasm. Indeed, Shuibei Street, which used to be just the leftover material of Tangqi, has now become a hot tourist attraction after renovation, but Shuibei Street can only be a bridge legacy dream of old Tangqi. And the reconstruction of xishitang Street is more like wrapping a layer of specious wood skin on the foundation of a piece of inferior furniture, which is similar in shape but not in spirit, and has a bad taste but a bad taste. Without the Alley of the old Tangqi, the old house of the old Tangqi, and the figure of the boatwoman beside the old Tangqi Canal, the Tangqi in people’s mind will not come back after all. It is impossible to rebuild the ancient town more than 40 years ago. Moreover, today’s people have accepted foreign houses and are working hard on row houses, longing for villas. The road of urbanization of the new Tangqi cannot be the road of vintage, and the old Tangqi is destined to die. When another new residential community with the style of France as the selling point appeared in front of Tangqi people, someone said that the old Tangqi was really over. However, I think that when today’s Tangqi people have accepted the lifestyle of Westerners and some of their ideas, especially when they have accepted their culture, why can’t a Western-style small water town be accepted? Western architecture emphasizes the external space, and calls the central square the living room of the city and the living room of the city. It has the intention to transform the interior into the outdoor, which obviously reflects an all-encompassing mind, very open. Isn’t this the characteristic that the Tangqi people who have grown up in narrow alleys of several generations should graft? Westerners attach importance to formal logic, pay attention to realism, rely on demonstration, and pay attention to reflecting geometric analysis. They emphasize more on symmetry, concretization and simulation of geometric patterns in the artistic conception and overall layout of architecture. Most of the fountains, waterfalls and flowing springs in Western gardens are magnificent and dynamic, showing the unrestrained, flexible and enthusiastic character of Westerners. Isn’t this what the regular, introverted and implicit Tangqi people need to change? In terms of layout, composition, artistic conception and other aspects, the regular Gardens in European continent give people a sense of broadness of vision, magnificent conception and romantic sentiment; While the geometric gardens reflect the opposition between heaven and man, the thinking habit and spiritual idea that human beings can surpass the heaven and distinguish the heaven from the human beings. In a sense, it reflects the extroverted and aggressive behavior pattern and value orientation of Westerners conquering nature. Taking straight, exposed, large scale and majestic as beauty, such as wide and flat lawn, huge open playground and magnificent high-rise buildings, all emphasize the analytical property of curves and geometric figures, straight, open, exposed and so on are undoubtedly the important features deeply contained in it. Isn’t this what the new Tangqi people pursue after more than 30 years of reform and opening up? Whether it is the old pond in my dream or the new pond under construction, it is my love. But the city of Rome was not built in one day. It took 600 years before and after the construction of the Cologne Cathedral. The construction of the new Tangqi could not be so fast and efficient, and it could be done slowly. Once the bridge collapsed, the house collapsed, what architecture and culture are all nonsense. At the end of the digression, let’s take it as nonsense.
