Building up New Physique: an Investigation on Tianjin Quanye Expo Site in Early Twentieth Century China
  Abstract

This paper takes Tianjin Quanye Expo Site as a specific case, and intends to explore it as an active culture-bearing mechanism in the transformation of physical culture in early-twentieth-century China. In contrast to traditional private gardens, Quanye Expo Site was opened as a public park and furnished with athletic equipments at the center area. The paper argues that one purpose of this Expo Site was to naturalize modern sports, build up new physique, and further strengthen the country.
