< 巴別塔 >  

 

當人類學會火的使用後開始了文明的發展,人們開始認為人定勝天、認為自己能夠與上帝平起平坐。<巴別塔>是在人類的自大下建造成的通天巨塔,人類受到了上帝的懲罰說著不同的語言,彼此的歧見造成衝突導致人們分東離西。這不單只是個故事,當我們仔細觀察我們的生活時,雖然說著一樣的語言,但是我們是否時常用「自己的語言」來解讀他人呢?人們並沒有因為聖經上啟示了解到溝通的重要性,我們眼睜睜看著爭端的發生而不去阻止,當爭端持續地蔓延後便是災難的開始。巴別塔不只是個建築表象,它是一個生活意象,如果我們不學著尊重與傾聽,巴別塔將會再次建造於人們的內心當中。進入了21世紀,人類的科技及文明逐漸進步,世界最高樓的紀錄每隔幾年就被打破,人們似乎在爭奪天空的佔有權,這是向各國炫耀權利與財富還是想再次挑戰上帝的權威呢?溫室效應、空氣污染、水資源短缺、氣候變遷等天災人禍的發生,是否是現代的巴別塔現象呢?

 

在建築旅行的道路上,我發現在近代都市中的天際線現象;高樓大廈越蓋越高並且逐漸密集,其實上帝也構築了抵禦巴別塔的天際線,人們是否能夠接收到這個暗示呢?

 

< Tower of Babel >  

 

Men started the development of civilization after learn how to use the fire. People believed Faith can move the mountains, men and God are even. <Tower of Babel> is the skyscraper that constructed under men’s arrogance.  Men were punished by God and speak different language. The diverse opinions cause the conflict and then disruption. This is not just a story. When we look at our lives, even speak the same language, do we usually interpret with “our own language?” Men did not learn the importance of the communication from Bible. We witness the occurrences of wars and did not stop, after the continuous disputes starts the catastrophe. Tower of Babel is more than an architecture appearance but an image of living. If we don’t learn the respect and the listening, Tower of Babel will appear in people’s mind again. Men’s technology and civilization progress gradually in 21th century, the record of highest build was broken every few years, people are fighting for the ownership of the sky.  Is this the show-off for power and wealth or the challenge to God’s power again? Green house, air pollution, water shortage, climate changes; nature and man-made disaster, are this the modern Babel tower phenomenon?

 

On the way of architecture travel, I found the phenomena of the skyline; higher and more intensive skyscrapers in the modern city. God also build the skyline to defense of the Tower of Babel, can men receive this imply?
