“ The proposal is to infiltrate and to re-conceal community and bio-diversity from its historical pattern. The Concept master plan finds fundamental inspiration in the strong historical identity of the railway line, and the identity of historical industrialisation background of Kaohsiung city.
The development is inspired by the culturally and biologically responsive between the new city urban fabric and existing old town Yen Chan district. The guiding principle of the master plan proposal is to inspire a meaningful sense of community and a shared commitment for social and environmental responsibility.
The proposal also introduces a series of urban agriculture farming and historically integrated parks. The strategy is to infiltrate and to conceal the community and biological diversity from the nearby Wan Shu Mountain. It also reflects the historical transformation of Kaohsiung city from industrial city to a contemporary cityscape.” Description of Maxthreads. Stage: Competition entry. Honourable mention.
