The building is the other, and the events, which are real experiences, are the subject. So, what is an art museum that removes its art for maintenance of its air-conditioning system?

Whether you are here for a nap, or taking your time diving into a bowl of shaved ice, or simply just looking for a chill-out spot, the canopy stands here, welcoming you with its spanning roofs. As if giving a massage to the city, this place helps it shed away some weariness of the everyday life, allowing the vitality to sprawl on without boundaries.
The existence of needless elements and lacking of pragmatic factors become a subtle matter in the discussions on space construction. How should we view the spirituality of architecture in the Oriental cultural context ? What are the considerations of site context that should be valued when discussing the site essence?

The project is located on Penghu Island – a small Island in the southwest Taiwan, where the blazing sunlight and splendid landscape await and astonish the visitors.

Treehouses in the Dreamy Forest is located inside a popular former theme park in Miaoli, Taiwan. The site is on a piece of flattened hilly land with several banyan trees planted by the previous owner. The new owner wanted to turn this woodland into a campground and create a recreational space in harmony with the natural surroundings, with "artisan craftsmanship" and "local lifestyle" as the central themes.

“Workstation JK” is located in Central District of Taichung City, an old neighborhood developed during the period of Japanese rule. As time went by, the city has lost its vitality. The site of Workstation JK used to be a shabby hybrid of factory and house. Such disarray was a chance for us to rebuild it into a place for living and working.
