SHADE ANALYSIS Wind Flow Taichung is a city going through vast expansion without a clear vision for the future. The city is now facing urban issues such as inequity in infrastructure accessibility and urban heat island effect.

Accessibility

26

The project examined the spatial structure of a typical local community through a sustainable lens that focuses on basic human rights to access sun, air, and public transportation.

Chieh Huang

PennDesign MLA Individual

One-Point Perspective: A Systematic Construction of Space: The “Invention” of Perspective “One-point perspective is a simulation of what the eye sees from a human being, therefore when it comes to natural landscape, it is almost impossible to use one-point perspective to capture the sublimity of nature. Everything is too much larger than human scale and too far away from the viewer that the eye can see almost nothing converging to a single point.”
