Abstract

As the first study built in Huanggang, Xuetang Academy is also Su Shi's residence when he stays in Huangzhou. Xuetang has just thatched cottages for sheltering at first. Yet after it is used as a study, the architectural style is converted towards Chinese structure of timber-frame covered with gray bricks and tiles. Reconstruction work that enables the academy to appear in superior level uses Chinese traditional architectural style of post and lintel construction or saddle roof. Containing particular cultural connotation, Xuetang is deemed as a sacred eastern land filled with wisdom and the "monumental construction" for scholarly attainments of Su Shi and it represents the totem of scholars studying Su Theory for Su Shi's literary achievements.
