The task is not only about striving to reserve and explore the local Hakka heritages,natural and humane history,as well as customs and practices of Taiwan, but also about to gradually expand thinking dimensions so as to cover the overseas Hakka and the global Hakka; which is to say it requires immediate consideration and construction of the Hakka Civilization, for the ultimate goal of becoming a global Hakka research center. In practices, by way of the organization mechanism of the museum, search and collection of substantial and non-substantial civilizations of the Hakka ethnic group shall be implemented, as well as the analyses, display and promotion tasks,so that the center provides an essential platform to allow the nationals and international contacts understanding the Hakka Culture.


National Taichung Digital Library Competition, 1st Place

The site of this new library lies on the strategic location of a park connected to one of the city’s important linear green belt system. At the entrance plaza, the building recesses to form one gentle green curve on the lawn to express a welcoming gesture to the visitors. The volume of ground floor is “streamlined” to allow maximum transparency at the base. This fluent pattern also helps create a movement of people through the ground level of the library. With its linear window and curved exterior wall between floors, the facade of National Taichung Library is meant to echo the vibrant context. Visitors inside the reading room will be able to enjoy the vast green treetop view through large glass taking advantage of horizontal openings facing the city’s greenbelt. The folding facade reaches out for sunshine and creates shadows to enrich the building’s elevations. Inspired by dotted light pattern of sunlight through tree leaves, the design proposes a series of round shaped openings spread out over the roof to allow for indirect sunlight and ventilation for energy saving.
