Wan Qing Dumpling Festival 2017 - A Bungalow & a Revolution

Description

The former Sun Yat Sen Villa was an important instrument in Dr. Sun Yat Sen’s revolution. To uncover the full story of this house, we need to first look at how this building came to be by looking at:

The architectural story of this house – How did this type of house, of all the other types of houses, develop throughout history and eventually cross paths with a revolution.

The historical account of a revolution – How Chinese revolutionary Sun Yat Sen used this house to plan three uprisings in the 1911 Chinese Revolution and create design for the Republic of China flag.

Meeting point: Main entrance to Sun Yat Sen Nanyang Memorial Hall
