The poetic spirit can be first seen in ancient Roman architecture. For example, the continuous colonnade symbolizes spatial directivity, the daylighting in the ceiling means the vast nature, and the symmetrical form contains the eternal spirit of the place. With the progress of science and technology, people's pursuit of space has gone beyond traditional functions, and further appeals to additional symbols such as materiality, aesthetics and solidity. In the "World Design Master Class >" course, "Yinji" specially invited the world's top design master Andre Fu, the father of minimalist architectural design Claudio Silvestrin, and the humanized minimalist master Paolo Belloni, through the basic elements of architecture ─ walls, columns, openings, Combined with the change of time and space, it creates a poetic spiritual place that will endure forever.
In addition, in the "World Design Master Class >" lecture, three famous designers will pass on the most important design theories from the minimalist aesthetic design techniques, combined with the practical experience of international projects, so that the audience will once again be immersed in such spatial issues as single and compound, place and phenomenon, ephemeral and eternal.
The famous Hong Kong interior architect André Fu, With an extensive portfolio of projects throughout Asia and Europe, he has revolutionized the concept of modern luxury with a series of projects that reflect Fu’s signature artistic perspective and timeless sensibility.The spirit of his design concept is to inspire people to think about luxury.
For the past decade and a half, Fu’s vision has been defined by a seamless alignment of cultural and design sensibilities, modern luxury, art and craftsmanship. A trained architect, his projects span scales and typologies, continuously bridging the gap between cultures, and drawing as naturally on European principles of beauty as from Oriental qualities, traditions and modernity.

Claudio Silvestrin is a world-famous architect and designer and is known as the “father of minimalist architectural design”. Despite his distinguished position in the architectural world, Claudio Silvestrin prefers to keep a low profile, avoiding the showiness preferred by many at the top of his profession. The same might be said about his projects which, rather than indulging in the spectacular and hyper-ornate, are understated affairs, serene and meditative.
Claudio Silvestrin是世界著名的建筑师与设计师，被誉为“极简主义建筑设计之父”。尽管Claudio Silvestrin在建筑界有着举足轻重的地位，但他还是喜欢保持低调，避免了许多业内顶尖人士喜欢的浮华。他的作品也可以这样说，不是沉迷于壮观和华丽的事物，而是低调、宁静和沉思。
“沉思的建筑和我们内心的自我——它最重要的是我们的灵魂。“—Claudio Silvestrin Claudio Silvestrin出生于1954年，师承米兰A.G.Fronzoni大师，毕业于英国伦敦建筑联盟学院。Claudio Silvestrin对哲学的兴趣，他的视野，他的正直，头脑清晰，有创造力和对细节的关注体现在他独特的建筑中：简朴但不极端，当代而永恒，沉稳但不禁欲，坚强但不令人生畏，优雅但不浮夸，简单但并非没有灵魂。
Claudio Silvestrin认为建筑是一种诗歌，能够通过空间和材料表达情感；运用艺术性呈现建筑的哲学、品牌的灵魂。经典隽永的设计是Claudio Silvestrin的建筑美学，将品牌的哲学、优雅与建筑、艺术融为一体。
