No cities should escape from their history and original features.

Taoyuan, also be called as a city of thousand of ponds, which has an unique landscape in Taiwan. This uniqueness is a victim of the city expansions. Instead of let this uniqueness undeveloped and being a part of victim by filled with soil as the land for the high-rise and high density developments, I would like to purpose a model water friendly community idea and a new living style to Taoyuan city.

This community consist with the one family houses which is the typical living style in this surrounding area, this project defines the public realm of this community, combining the micro urban farming culture and enhance the relationship between the water and this community.
