Since Taiwan are accepting more southeast culture and embracing the worker to our community. Here will be the best spot for Taiwanese to step foot into their culture and get to blend the life style through the area.
Twenty years ago the area was the center of the city. It’s fading cause of the shift in the main business block. This moment it plays the role of a multicultural region and a bridge between the railway and the main commercial center. But until now there is no good balance between urban exhibition, transportation, public space and life quality .
Air pollution is synonymous with the city. Because of the establishment of Thermal power station and people’s traffic habits, air pollution has become the main environmental problem in this city.
Through this design to achieve a balance and connection between multiculturalism, the environment and human, and the past and the future.
