Abstract (in English)

The existing interior decorations of the Qing Dynasty are the best of each dynasty, with its diversified forms and complicated functions. As early as the 1920s, the Rehabilitation Committee of Qing court recorded the interior furnishing in the Forbidden City by using Chinese traditional documentary method. During the period of the Institute for Research in Chinese Architecture, the pioneers of Chinese architectural history drew lessons from Western mapping methods to record the interior decoration and furnishing. Today, along with the constantly updated techniques, the recording method for the current situation of interior decoration has gradually developed from two-dimensional drawings into digital and comprehensive records. However, the current research results are mostly limited to a single field, and have not systematically recorded and reproduced the current situation of the size, material, structure, function, decoration and other aspects of interior decoration. This paper takes the digital record and reproduction about the current situation of interior decoration and furnishing in Jingfu Palace in the Forbidden City as an example. Through the use of photogrammetry, 3D laser scanning, virtual display and other technology and equipment at the forefront of architectural field, it makes qualitative and quantitative record about the interior decoration inside Jingfu Palace. By combining with the interpretation of historical documents, it restores the original design ideas hidden behind the current situation of interior decoration and furnishing, so as to summarize the best recording and reproducing method of interior decoration and furnishing of Qing Dynasty.
