“Guan” is a Chinese term of seeing. The literal meaning can be read from this ideogram is “seeing again”. The carefulness of seeing again endows “Guan” a sense of exploration. “Guan” means seeing and watching with thoughts, appreciating things with intellects and aesthetics. “Guan” is not only about seeing, but also a retrospective introjection, contemplating from the subject to the object and vice versa. Therefore, traditionally, the architecture in China named “Guan” are normally places related to spiritual practice or enlightenment. It is necessary to distinguish the straightforward "seeing" and comprehensive "Guan", to see again and again, that’s the way to understand the essence of the term "Guan".
