LIGHTING THE SQUARE

Eastablish a connection between North and South Location:Xinyi District,TaiWan May-Jun.2018

ISSUE The site is located in Taipei's most prosperous area, the Xinyi District. All of the most advanced consumer buildings were built there include the once-world-class high-rise building Taipei 101 and the Taipei City Government.There are a lot of people (office workers, shopping people, civil servants) every day. It is such an important area. But there is a marginal space of the city in this area, which hinders the development of commercial behavior and leisure behavior to some extent. Some problems made this area be ignored.

The East of Taipei

This place, although on two important urban axes, has become a neglected corner because of the important landmarks on this axis - the city government and the central business district, where the back door of their buildings face to the base. There are a lot of entrances to the underground parking. The goods will be loaded overaround the place. Therefore, the roads around the base are all coming and going vehicles, causing pedestrians can not access to this base freely.

ZHONGLI CITY'S NEW LOGO Rebuild the Old Sreet River and focus the traditional business

Location:Zhongli District,TaiWan Feb-Mar 2018 12


ISSUE The Old Street River in Zhongli City has been covered and opened, the vertical channel of concrete made the relationship between water and people gradually disappear. At the same time, because of the surrounding domestic sewages and the rainwater from the road sewers all flow into the old street river, the water quality of the Old Street Rive is not very good, resulting in poor ecological conditions in the water. Because of the backward relationship between people and the river, the relationship between the river and the surrounding traditional business is also rupturing. The market in the old days is disappearing, which also includs some ancient food. Therefore, we hope that through the old street brook flip, including the rejuvenation of the old street brook shape and function, re-create a new relationship for people and water, and then in tandem with the local industry. Taking advantage of the upcoming MRT A22 station to bring people into the base to create an active urban blue belt. Make the Old Street River a symbol of Zhongli City, Zhongli City's LOGO.

ISSUE

In TaiWan ,there are only water shrew and beaver is semi-aquatic mammal.However,the beaver is considered has died out in TaiWan Island,so that the reaserch of water shrew becomes much more important.But the number of water shrew is smaller than the other small mammals in land.Otherwrise it is easily disappear because of theman’s activities. (2002, Abe 2003, Arai et al. 1985)

WATER SHREW Scientific Name:Chimarrogale himalayica Family Name:Soricidae Conservation Grading:Should be protected,III

The areas which water shrew ever benn to before 2009 The areas where water shrew ever appeared in 2009 and 2010

In these areas,MingChi is a place which is developing as a scenic spot. Because of its unreasonable design,theenvironment is bad to water shrew,so that the number of water shrew is reducing. DIFFERENT HABITAT DATA

The Frog is the loudest

Japan Navy Sixth Fuel Plant CNPC Site Soundscape Plan Location:Hsinchu City, TaiWan Sep-Nov. 2018

ISSUE WWF has pointed out that human’s over consuming of the natural environment over the recent fifty years has caused serious damage to the habitat and made a 60% reduction in the number of the organisms. The ecological map has been broken and scattered. The land is on the edge of the city. It was converted the fermentation factory of the Japanese military fuel factory into a tanker of CNPC. It has been completely retired to become a Brown Earth-Work. For nature, this land is full of diversity and possibilities in the future. However, with the rapid expansion of the city, the blue sky around has been overwhelmed by high-rise buildings, and humans continue to plunder the land blindly. In the face of the increasing global ecological crisis, we can't help but be alert and reflect. We hope to make this Brown Earth-Work an ecological habitat, like the fragment which was left by nature in the city, and we can fight back the ecological puzzles that belong to nature one day. “Frog” is an ecological index of habitat diversity. The small oil tanks in the base are secret, densely damp and safe, and are suitable for creating small habitats where frogs can spawn. Therefore, using the condition of the 12-meter-tall oil tank, we have to create an inaccessible piece of land. When people hear the frog’s crisp tweet, it shows that the land has recovered its vitality. We only need to hear it, and we don’t need to see or even interfere with it, because this land is already belonging to nature. "Listen" is enough.

History needs to be interpreted, told and listened by people. This land was once the fermentation factory of the sixth navy dyestuff factory which lies in Higashi, Japan during the Japanese occupation. Later, in 1949, in order to seek rapid economic development, CNPC used the design of industrial buildings that were left in the North Hsinchu during the Japanese occupation period, forming a cluster of neighboring facilities such as heavy industry. In 2018, the abandoned factory of CNPC, this land can finally be picked up again, changing the character of the urban fringe in the process of urbanization, and turning into a rare ecological green space in the city. Provide a leisure space to the residents nearby while using the sound of nature, telling people the history of the past.


THE PRINCIPLE OF THE CONCH The sound can be heard in the conch, mainly because of resonance. According to the physics principle, if the frequency of vibration or sound out the conch is the same as the frequency inherent in the conch, resonance will occur, and the resonance will amplify the sound. According to the conch can amplify the sound, create a natural sounder, exude the various sounds of the creatures in the oil tank, and establish a sky walkway above the tank. When it is not yet near to the tank, what only people can heard is the noisy of Hsinchu city and the wind blowing in Hsinchu, but when people walked around the oil tank, they could hear the sounds of nature like frogs and insects, and rejected the humans to intervene in nature because of the height of 12m at a same time.

The habitat is built in the open space outside the oil tank for the reproduction of the organism, and the inside of the oil tank is an undisturbed natural space.

The frog will find such an undisturbed place to survive here and become a member of the Hsinchu city.

Clean the base and determine the oil tanks need to be retained and the oil tanks that can be converted into sounders, and connect them with the skywalk line.


THE REHABITATION OF THE FROG'S HABITAT I selected four oil tanks with a diameter of 11m and a height of 12m to rehabilitate the frogs, creating an environment for the shoal wetlands and herbaceous plants needed for frogs to lay eggs, so that the frogs could not be disturbed in the four opposite and externally isolated oil tanks. The frog's presence is an indicator of our ecological creation. When we can hear the singing of various frogs here, it is when I successfully put this piece of ecological puzzle left in the city back to nature.

Sound line:

Use the original oil tank connection structure, set up an empty bridge, you can hear the frog cry on the bottom, but can not get close to the frog. The life of the frog is guaranteed to be undisturbed.

Sounder:

The sound generator set up by the principle of the conch can expand the frog's voice. Let the pedestrians on the sound line hear the sound of the bottom frog.

The height of 30 cm becomes the only communication channel between the habitat in the oil tank and the outside world. The frog can enter and exit the oil sump through these 30 cm high holes.

Create a habitat that frogs like, and attract frogs that have been industrialized and urbanized to occupy the land. After they return to nature, they will feel happy, bring precious memories of the summer night to the urban people, and tell the urbanization the trouble they brought.

FROG'S VOICE

Moltrechti's green treefrog scientific name: Rhacophorus moltrechti

Taipei treefrog scientific name: Rhacophorus taipeianus

Japan treefrog scientific name: Rhacophorus moltrechti

Eiffinger’s Treefrog scientific name: Rhacophorus moltrechti

Moltrechti's green treefrog first made a "croak -" long sound, followed by a number of "croak ", "croak " and "croak " short sounds. The "croak-" long sound is used to indicate the type, that is mean, "I am Moltrechti's green treefrog ."The short sound of "croak" is to increase the attraction to female frogs and express "I love you."

When a single Taipei treefrog is called, the scream is one or two syllables, the low and monotonous "Ge-"; when the chorus is formed, t h e s c r e a m becomes three to four syllables "Ge-Ge-Ge-", sometimes it will also add "slightly, slightly, slightly" in the end, to increase change and attractiveness.

The breeding season is in the spring and summer of each year, and the noise is loud and short.

M a r c h t o September is the main breeding season for E. sinensis in western Taiwan. In addition to bamboo tubes and tree holes, there are shaded water pillars, stone seams or containers, which are also E. tree frogs. Breeding place. Eggs and granules are glued to the wall separately. Female frogs can lay eggs several times, but no more than 200 eggs are laid each time. So in an oil tank like a cave that is not disturbed, they must also be able to prosper and send out their shouts.
