Revitalization of the city center has been a significant issue in the urban design discipline since the 1990s in Taiwan. How to create a viable balance between development and conservation for the old CBD? How to appreciate the historical meaning of the urban heritage and generate from it a new form of relevance? Is it possible to develop a more creative and dynamic way to deal with local life and global network? To answer these questions, we need to shift a little bit to not-so-rational aspect of the city design thinking.
Cities are more than the collection of their streets and their buildings- whether they are the homes of the ordinary or the monuments of the very rich. They are more than the places where people live, play, work, earn and die. Cities are also stories, mythologies, and narratives. They are journeys, encounters, conflicts, and resolutions. They tell stories of the relationship between people and other people, between civilization and nature, between the real and the unreal, between the known and the unknown. All cities tell these stories through their spaces and people- through their patterns, textures, surfaces, and spaces. Architecture is bound in all of these. It tells the story of the city and often these stories bridge across time and space.
