Abstract

1928-1937年间,国民政府锐意改造首都南京。当时,新建的林荫大道系统成为南京最主要的公共空间。以中山路的建造为例,阐述民国规划林荫大道的政治目的,探讨国民政府如何利用公共空间,作为展示国家势力的场所。并且指出国民政府通过在城市最主要的公共空间进行政治活动,使人们无可避免地参与其中,达到国家民族建构的目的。
Between 1928 and 1937, the Nationalist Government intended to reconstruct Nanjing into a modern capital that could match international examples like Paris, London, and Washington.A major component for the reconstruction project was the creation of a Parisian-like boulevard called Zhongshan Road for the parade of the casket of the late Sun Yat-sen. Since then, the boulevard has become the most prominent public space in Nanjing.By tracing the transnational references in boulevard design, this paper explores the political meaning behind Zhongshan Road. It illustrates the ways the State used public spaces to project national power and to achieve the goal of nation building.
