The design project of “Taichung Literacy Museum and its surrounding landscape parks” hopes to convey the profound historical and literacy developments in Taichung, and provides for people a cozy environment where the local features and lifestyles could continue over time. As such, that the flowing rivers, the shades of trees, the laughter of children, footsteps sound of walking on gravel, and the grassy and earthy scents altogether embody the wonderful histories and lives. Both the leaves sprouting among stones and the imperfection of broken stone walls give forth the lovely view of harmonious interdependence between people and scenery. “Taichung Literacy Museum and its surrounding landscape parks” constituting the histories of Taichung and Taiwan with spaces can also be viewed as a draft of Taichung literacy, and it provides people an excellent public place with diverse features.



This area is surrounded by a well-developed public transportation system so that anyone can conveniently pay a visit here. As to long-distance transportation, people can at first take the train and get off at Taichung Railway Station, then coming here either by bus, taxi or on foot. For those visitors coming here by car, they can get off the highway at Taichung Interchange, then driving along Zhongzhen Road. People living in Taichung can come here along Zhongzhen Road, Wuquan Road or Linsen Road, afterwards turning to Liuchuan East Road, Lequn Street or Zili Street.



With the convenient transport network and abundant cultural resources, this is a wonderful place worth taking a one-day tour, where people feel the scenes and humanities described in literatures. This is a tour full of emotional and intellectual elements.



The design project of “Taichung Literacy Museum and its surrounding landscape parks” focuses on breaking boundaries of spaces-the amicable interaction between the public space and surrounding environment; integrating areas-creating the characteristics for the public space and history; combining the memories of literacy; rearranging the connection of open space between the historical sites and parks. The distinctive design skills, therefore, reconcile the space of community and integrate the connections of parks.
