梁思成、林徽音

• China’s premier architectural historians didn’t earn their distinction easily.
In the 1930s, the husband and wife team of Lin Huiyin and Liang Sicheng traveled to the most remote and difficult corners of China to survey and preserve ancient buildings.
Ms. Lin’s niece, the architect Maya Lin, said, “If it weren’t for them, we would have no record of so many ancient Chinese styles, which simply disappeared.”
Developers in Beijing were more concerned with progress. In 2012, under cover of night, they demolished the house where the couple had lived.
