人文学院大楼

每天到华裔馆的中文系办公室,都会经过建筑工地旁。围起来部分,原本什么都看不到,偶尔听到一些机械的声响。今年三月,我到华裔馆后面的商学院大楼,从楼顶往下看,不得了,原来围墙内已经挖了大洞,正在建地下层了呢。当时,我拍了一些照片,也记录在这个部落格里

接下来,一天一天的过去,渐渐的从围墙顶缘望过去,也可以看到建筑一层一层的高起来。下面这张照片,是今年八月初拍的,下面远处是绿瓦红墙华裔馆。



最近,从南大湖那头走回中文系办公室,又从另外一个角度,看到这栋逐渐成形的建筑物。我很少从这里走过,看到的原来是很不同的景观。照片左边的是人文学院的办公楼,右边的是三座讲堂,已经都看到具体的形状了。



我从一开始就参与人文学院大楼的蓝图讨论,很能够感受到人文学科训练的老师,在投入建筑构思的过程中所显露的人文关怀。不过,这些抽象的人文性,不知道是不是会在建筑落成后,具体的展现出来。 也许,不仅是作为硬体的建筑,而是整个人文学院环境的创造和经营,更能够显示人文的精神吧。从这个角度来说,人文学院最后是不是让人感觉具有人文性,那是全体老师和同学,到时共同努力才会完成的呢。

近来,随着先后 Can B 旁SPMS楼的完工、Can A 的脱位、人文楼的成形,心头涌出了

校园basking-梦。

要做梦,就要不耻梦下去。以下贴上我的梦之概念,以寻同梦人。


THE Music Basking On Campus DREAM

......

A little dream.

I see a corner on campus, equipped with simple setups of a simple stage area, where students play the guitar or the keyboard, or doing an aca pella with beatbox, singing their works of original compositions; foreign counterparts, seranading with their favourite folksongs or even childhood rhymes, and downstage passers-by recollecting that same piece of rhyme in their first languages; Professors, coming on stage to dedicate a song to an admired someone of the teaching staff office located at the other end of the spine, north or south; Canteen stallholder, coming forward to karaoke a hokkien favourite to his/her heart's content in between the peak hours and endless scoopings of the bachor mee.

Something like that.

A little dream. A little vision if you may call.

Would you join me in this venture. Of bringing the abovementioned into our school campus.

*************
Friends have informed me how terrible the administration work involved is going to be. How horrible liasing work is going to be. How difficult it is going to be, to find more like-minds to get going.

Well, something is burning. Passion is. It has been a while. A very long while. I will see how far this will take me.

And lastly, if you are interested, please drop a smile and say a big hi. I will appreciate serious players in this game of transcending reality to bring on the dream.

待` 与同梦人系缘。

美银:你知道吗,中文系,以及人文学院,有好些老师和同学,跟你有相同的梦想呢。

肯定的是,新的人文学院会有一个有人文气息的咖啡馆,以及一个让人遇到人,让思想碰撞思想,让灵感激发灵感,的人文空间。

太棒了。^^
这样,我也该专心回入我的论文筹备了。

呵呵。
