Preface

National Taiwan Normal University (NTNU) has long been recognized as one of elite institutions of higher education. Dr. Yang oversaw plans to expand and remodel NTNU’s main library, education building and the technology building. He considered to be very knowledgeable and respectful of historical architectural details. With his persistence, the new buildings were successfully incorporated into the traditional and historic fabric of the campus.

Lin, Chia-Ching (Anne C. Lin) is writing this thesis to accomplish the master degree. I was her professor during the collage years and happened to live in the community which is discussed in her project. Therefore, I was invited to write this cover letter for her. The New Garden City was established in 1968 by the architect, Mrs. Hsu, Ze-Lan. While she was mapping out the community, she was inspired by a British urban planner, Ebenezer Howard, The Garden Cities of To-morrow. The concept of the urban PLANÒISÒTOÒHAVEÒANÒECONOMICÒSYSTEMÒTHATÒCANÒBEÒSELF SUF¾CIENCYÒ7ITHÒTHATÒVISION ÒTHEÒ builder operated restaurants, markets, transportation and the theme park in order to MAKEÒPRO¾TSÒTOÒMAINTAINÒTHEÒTOWNÒ$URINGÒTHEÒTIME ÒTHEÒRESIDENCEÒDIDÒNOTÒNEEDÒTOÒPAYÒ for any managing or maintenance fees.

They started selling lands and buildings, and this unit was sold to someone who does not live in the community. The architecture with full of design has been abandoned. Other facilities also broke down one by one. The builder was no longer in charge. The residences have to take over and protect the town by themselves. The situation awakens the people in town. The community recently is planning to redevelop the town. The site, the subject of Anne’s thesis, located at the center of the community, has a very strong history background. Since it becomes a private property, how to make it for commercial use and merge with the community at the same time becomes the challenge of the project. Anne was a hard working student in my class and has creative design potential. I’m really looking forward to see how she is going to develop the scheme. I would love to write the over letter for her and wish her luck for the thesis project.

INTRODUCTION

STEP UP ON THE SOLID TRUTH With a deep story and fundamental purpose about this unique community- New Garden City, the project digs out the memories and hidden treasure of Taiwanese culture. The Wing Resort developed based on the solid truth from the history of the community and social anxiety around the world. The photo is the washed granolithic ďŹ nishes stairs, which is used throughout the entire community to suit the moist weather and slippery conditions due to rain.


Story of the New Garden City First residential community in Taiwan. The New Garden City (Huayuan Xincheng) is a town surrounded by nature with hills ANDĂ’STREAMSĂ’)TĂ’ISĂ’THEĂ’ÂľRSTĂ’LARGEĂ’SCALEĂ’RESIDENTIALĂ’COMMUNITYĂ’APPEARSĂ’INĂ’4AIWANĂ’ANDĂ’ located in Xindian District, New Taipei City. Since it is an inviting community with breathtaking sceneries, many artists and designers desire to live in this getaway neighborhood. HISTORY OF THE COMMUNITY The whole mountain was a gift from the last president Chiang Kai-shek to a female architect- Xiu Zelan in 1968. During 1950s, Taiwan had implemented a ‘new’ town planning called Garden City Method to solve the pressing problems in urban city and towards to build a wonderland. [1] The architect proposed to build a community based on the method and named the town New Garden City. The method was initiated by Ebenzer Howard in 1989. The key of the method is to contain residence, industry and agriculture within and become self-contained. Therefore, she built an AMUSEMENTĂ’TOĂ’SUPPORTĂ’MAINTENANCEĂ’COASTĂ’ANDĂ’BECOMEĂ’AĂ’ÂľNANCIALLYĂ’SELF SUPPORTEDĂ’ COMMUNITYĂ’4HEĂ’.EWĂ’'ARDENĂ’#ITYĂ’ISĂ’THEĂ’ÂľRSTĂ’LARGEĂ’SCALEĂ’HUMAN BASEDĂ’COMMUNITYĂ’ appears in Taiwan. It became a Plato’s republic for politicians and businessmen in 1971.

Right Ebenezer Howard (18501928), the father of the garden city movement. It is vision map for a ‘Group of Slumless, Smokeless Cities’. Garden cities were intended to be planned, self-contained communities surrounded by “greenbelts�, containing proportionate areas of residences, industry and agriculture.


INTRODUCTION

However, things don’t go as planned all the time, the revenue couldn’t balance with the expenditures from the amusement park to maintain the town. At the same time, Xiu Zelan had a career setback and escaped from the country. The community was almost announced vacancy from the government because of low water source consecration problem and plan to build a reservoir around in 1979. New Garden #ITYĂ’WASĂ’OUTĂ’OFĂ’MANAGEMENTĂ’ALMOSTĂ’FORĂ’ÂľFTEENĂ’YEARSĂ’5NTILĂ’ Ă’WITHĂ’RESIDENTSgĂ’ effort to preserve this beautiful community by themselves, the Orchids Stream Culture Association was founded (2004) to rebuild and maintain the area. In recent years, the community awareness have grown even more for both environmental and ARTIÂľCIALĂ’7ITHĂ’AĂ’DEEPĂ’HISTORYĂ’BEHINDĂ’THEĂ’COMMUNITY Ă’THEĂ’PROJECTĂ’TENDĂ’TOĂ’CONTINUEĂ’THEĂ’ fundamental idea of the community- to have a self contained life with hope and joy. OVERALL CONCEPT People nowadays live in the city with high social anxiety in this generation, which was the core problem to solve for the project: The Wing Resort provides a place for your soul a retreat by going back to nature. Being “healthyâ€? has become a very popular and important topic nowadays and it is also the original intention of the community founder when she was building the New Garden City (Huayuan Xincheng). The project inspired by a distinctive bird, Taiwan Blue Magpie and symbolize a

WALK IN THE PATH OF DREAM In a rich, natural vegetation environment, Chinese Sweet Gum Avenue is located within the in New Garden City. During the ower season, it becomes a crowded pathway with tourists enjoying the breeze.


About the Site New Garden City, New Taipei City, Taiwan

Below Global depression rate graphic map. Showing the location of Taiwan and potential mental illness throughout the world. Facing Page Right Aerial photo of Northern Taiwan. The gray part is the urban development area of the capital Taipei City. The site is located close to the suburban area surrounded by greenery.

New Garden city (Hwa-yuan Xin-cheng) is located in New Taipei City, which is on the outskirts of the capital Taipei City. The two cities have a relationship and distance that are similar to that of Sausalito and San Francisco. In the process of population growth, the suburbs were pushed outward, but New Taipei city kept part of the residential area. The community is a beautiful urban getaway in nature with views of the city. The site also rich in Taiwan mountain endemic species. It contains all the elements to be a wonderland, but sadly it was forgotten for a while. The site is chosen to recall the purpose from the history, for human nature desires to escape from the cold urban jungle. There are several strategies of choosing this site for the project: TRANSPORTATION With transportation developments, the Sindian metro station was opened in 1998, BRINGINGĂ’IMMIGRATIONĂ’INTOĂ’THEĂ’COMMUNITYĂ’)TĂ’TAKESĂ’LESSĂ’THANĂ’ÂľFTEENĂ’MINUTESĂ’TOĂ’GETĂ’TOĂ’ the community from Sindian metro station, which is located at the edge of the capital city, Taipei. There is also a community shuttle bus--Green 3 from metro station to New Garden City. The service is between 6:00 to 22:30 every day with 20-minute intervals.


ANALYSIS

RESIDENTS They are people who keep the traditional music and art craft culture within the community. High percentage of the residents are artist, photographers, writers, retired teachers, and natural eco-enthusiasts. They are people looking for a better quality life and get away from the busy city life. They are people with deep root in Asian art and social culture. TIMMING There are two main factors that provide an opportunity for revolution in the commuNITYĂ’INĂ’RECENTĂ’YEARSĂ’&IRSTĂ’ISĂ’THEĂ’TAP WATERĂ’THATĂ’ÂľNALLYĂ’ENTEREDĂ’THEĂ’TOWNĂ’BYĂ’THEĂ’4AIWANĂ’ Water Corporation in 2013. This was a problem with the private road properties for long time and people could only use water from the steams. Second is the global carbon reduction and increased environmental awareness. The local government has recently started remodeling abounded buildings in town and giving out support.

A NEED FOR THE GENERATION The World Health Organization forecast that among the three main diseases in 2020, melancholia will be the second serious problem around the world. There is a higher rate of depression in the Western countries. The main cause is the weather with less sunlight and foggy sky, and another is the high divorce rate. According to a survey, in Taiwan, 73.5 % of the people between ages 45-59 suffer from depression. The non-psychotic postpartum depression studies also show a high prevalence rate in women (especially adult mothers.)[1] The time period within a day also hourly affect our mood situation. According to the research, the mood picks up from 6 am to noon and stays high and more positive during the day. Then it takes a dive down and more negative impact around 6 pm till mid night to bed. [2] There are many factors that lead to depression. One of the fundamental goals for this thesis project is to create a place with an antidepressant effect, a place that PROTECTSĂ’PEOPLEgSĂ’INNERĂ’HEATHĂ’ANDĂ’CHEERSĂ’UPĂ’ONEgSĂ’SOULĂ’4HEREĂ’AREĂ’ÂľVEĂ’WAYSĂ’TOĂ’HELPĂ’ people feel better: exercise, nurture yourself with good nutrition, identify problems but not be caught up with them, express yourself, and look on the bright side. [3] Base on the research and analysis, human activities related to open hours of the spaces are also considered while developing the program.

Project Building Central Center of the Community HISTORY OF THE BUILDING The project building was designed by the community founder architect, Mrs. Hsu Ze-Lan. She and her husband run the community together under their company named Newcheng co. and the building is under her properties. The building is located at the center of the community and was used as community center contain pool, market, kindergarten, and restaurants. However, Xiu Zelan had a career setback during that year in 1979. During the time, Newcheng co. gave out the project building as loan to bank. At the same period of time, many of her architecture design projects were demolished and many valuable historical architectures ware lost. The project building survived from being demolished but was been abandoned since then. Later on was sold to a medical cosmetology conglomerate. The owner planned to rebuild a water spa in 2006, but due to the low water source conservation areas and the environmental awareness from the community, the project was terminated and rejected by the residents. It remains abandoned still now (2014). BUILDING ARCHITECT 8IUÒ:ELANÒISÒTHEÒµRSTÒFEMALEÒ4AIWANESEÒARCHITECT ÒWHOSEÒANCESTRALÒHOMEÒISÒINÒ9UANLINGÒ Hunan.

People #LIENTĂ’ANDĂ’5SERĂ’PROÂľLE TARGET USER According to the main concept of the project- to restore and reinforce strength to the generation--soul seekers become the main target user group. Soul seekers are people who lives in the city and potential getting stress from social society. According to a survey, 73.5 % of people in Taiwan who are 45-59 years old have depression. Most of the stress comes from taking care of elders and being unemployed. The worst case for depression and the reason why this issue has been so urgent is that it causes people to commit suicide if they fail to overcome their stress. Chiayi, Keeling, and Nantou County, the developing areas in Taiwan, have the highest rate of social anxiety. New Taipei City, where the site is located has the second high rate of suicide. There are 77,725 people between the ages of 45 and 59 in Xindian district [2], which means almost 57,000 people in one district could potentially commit suicide. The project is not related to any medical properties but prevent potential stress from a getaway nature environment and personal growth through art making, cooking and cultivating within the resort programs. &ROMĂ’PROÂľTĂ’ASPECTĂ’FORĂ’THEĂ’CLIENT Ă’STUDENTS Ă’EMPLOYEESĂ’ANDĂ’TOURISTSĂ’AREĂ’SECONDARYĂ’ target users. According to the research, population on Xindian district is 297,638 people (2013 Feb.)

Xindian metro station has 19,116 tourists passing by every day. On average, there are 803,242 (2002) tourists each month visiting and traveling in Taiwan, and 119,895 people come to Xindian district. Taiwan has a full year schedule for šOWERĂ’SEASONSĂ’$URINGĂ’*ANUARYĂ’TOĂ’-ARCHĂ’ISĂ’#HERRYĂ’BLOOMҚOWERĂ’SEASONĂ’ANDĂ’ITĂ’ attracts tourist groups of all ages. Based on the location of the project, which is in the mountains, they become potential customers for the resort during their time of travel and tour. The project is also a challenge to respect the voice from the community. There are 3,128 residents in the neighborhood (2012-08.) Interaction and economic variables determine the social class of the town. The main components of the group are families with kids, household members, retired couples or singles. What is interesting and special about New Garden City is that the residents come from similar backgrounds. Most of them are artists, photographers, writers, and natural eco-enTHUSIASTSĂ’)NĂ’TERMSĂ’OFĂ’ÂľNANCE Ă’THEYĂ’AREĂ’PEOPLEĂ’BETWEENĂ’UPPERĂ’ANDĂ’MIDDLEĂ’INCOMEĂ’ level who make $200,000 to $250,000 USD a year or more. The idea of the project is also to support and help people stay in the community and to become the bridge between people coming in and out of the town, the new and old generation. CLIENT “We Offer Nothing But Perfect Solution!â€? This is the current slogan of the Asia -EDICALĂ’Ă’!ESTHETICĂ’'ROUPĂ’)TĂ’ISĂ’THEĂ’ÂľRSTĂ’MEDICALĂ’AESTHETICSĂ’GROUPĂ’INĂ’4AIWANĂ’4HEIRĂ’ mission is to be at the forefront of the medical aesthetic and anti-ageing industry. Based on the concept of fashion and aesthetic, they like to further extend their industry: not only focus on the beauty of the body, but also form the inner mind to shine. A heathy and perfect solution for a better generation is having both body and mind healthy.

RESIDENTS There are 3,128 people in the neighborhood (data update in 2012-08.) The interaction and economic variables determines the social class of the town. Family with kids are the most household members, others are retire couples or single. Most of them are artist, photographers, writers, and natural eco-enthusiasts. They are between upper and middle income people who make $200,000 to $250,000 a year and more. The New Garden City residents have play an important role of the user group of the project. They are not only the user but also people who look after programs going built or propose within the community. As before the client try to remodel the site become a water spa and have not considered the needs of the community and water usage problems. A spa might bring pollution and noise to the community so have been rejected from the residents. The proposing program includes residents as user group and client. The handson art studio, open market and tea garden provide residents who retired a second career chance and can be rented for educational activities. Recreation spa, nature pathway, libraries and restaurants all provide for residents to use with a membership program.

INSPIRATION

BEAUTIFUL AS YOU ARE Elegance of the flying Taiwan Blue Magpie is like the mysterious traditional Asian art- it is beautiful as it is. Nowadays many people have forgotten the root of the traditional craft and only look after modern art. By using a flying bird, it represents the traditional art culture flies up high again with confidence. It changed and transformed to a whole new look and appears to the generation.


Design Inspiration Taiwan Blue Magpie

The main design feature was inspired by a painting of a community map which is NOWÒHANGINGÒINÒTHEÒMANAGERÒOF¾CEÒ)TÒWASÒDRAWNÒBYÒANÒARTISTÒWHOÒLIVESÒINÒTHEÒCOMmunity. It shows the natural environment of the community. There are three kinds of birds drawn on the painting: Taiwan blue magpie, owl, and eagle. They were chosen because all can easily be found in the town and they also symbolically present strong characteristics: unity, wisdom, and power. The project is to represent the spirit of the residents in the community and art craft culture in Taiwan. Taiwan blue magpie perfectly matched the image of the project. Taiwan blue magpie is an endemic species in Taiwan and habituated in the community. It has an elegant appearance but strong nest defensive behavior in a strong solidarity community. Taiwan blue magpie, the design concept, represents people’s characteristics: the residents who just increased their awareness of protecting and reforming their community by founding a private association-–strong nest defense; an art- and culture-focused community that has rich and beautiful natural environment-–elegant; the community’s fundamental idea of the garden city method which is to be self-contained and nature surrounded. People grow their own food and help each other for living-– a strong solidarity community.

With a delicate appearance but strong potential power, the wing resort carries this idea throughout the entire design and creates spaces that can echo and strengthen people’s heart--a healing interior.

Programs in the Project Programming and space planning

SPATIAL EFFECT Spaces and our inner mind are like bubbles in the air which will be affected by the pressure surrounding it. They have a strong relationship. Interior architecture and exterior landscape are also the same. They interact as human beings who are INšUENCEDĂ’BYĂ’ONEĂ’ANOTHERĂ’&UNCTIONALITYĂ’OFĂ’THEĂ’SPACEĂ’INšUENCESĂ’PEOPLEgSĂ’ACTIONĂ’ Therefore, the program tempts to spread toward two extreme directions: scatter to aggregation. As for people who come individually, they potentially have a “scatteredâ€? experience through the programs. When an individual is affected by outward social stress, they will try to seclude themselves from groups and get a secured and independent space to calm their mind. Those spaces need more separation from the public and embrace a larger scale nature. Resort guest rooms are suited for this scattered experience need. Guest suites are placed on the highest level of the project to provide higher privacy. It is a point where you are wrapped up by the surrounding nature in the space. Tourists and travelers are like individuals “swarmingâ€? into one spot from all directions. The space needs to accommodate each individual’s need by a larger landscape. With an open space and green area in the project such as rooftop dining, tea garden and nature walk path evenly distribute people to the site. Spaces should allow people to express themselves and be “engagedâ€? in nature. People and nature cannot be separated. By analyzing the spatial relationship, the project also imports Healing Garden Method to develop the program. A garden is a secret place for quietness and central to great pleasure; it is a place for human enjoyment. Just as the Garden City Method (by Ebenezer Howard 1989) inspired COMMUNITY Ă’THEĂ’PROJECTĂ’GOALĂ’ISĂ’TOĂ’FULÂľLLĂ’THEĂ’PURPOSEĂ’BYĂ’CREATINGĂ’AĂ’hHEALINGĂ’INTERIORiĂ’ and build a better and joyful future for this generation.

Therefore, an indoor garden that is like a growing bud will lead people out to the broad nature landscape. If you believe and look at the future, you gain power. After gaining strength, people climb up by showering their heart, thoughts and mind through nature.

DESIGN

By removing the existing center stairway, represent getting rid of our old heart, thoughts and mind, the design creates a sense of security starting from the resort entry with an awning. The entry is like the head of the project building which is like a bird resting on the slop. From the zigzag roof top, its building front symbolizes a READY TO šYÒBIRDÒ4HEÒENTRYÒPROVIDESÒAÒWELCOMINGÒANDÒREFRESHINGÒEXPERIENCEÒANDÒ leads people to explore their journey throughout the programs.

LEVEL 3 RESORT ENTRY PLAZA The design challenge of the project is to get a balance between the existing rectangular architecture and the organic nature. The design continues the structure system grid by planting tree columns in the plaza. Also importing circular shape to break through the sharp edge and blend with the arch shape from the architecture language. A bridge with thin water running underneath it connects the plaza with the resort lobby. The water separates the resort from the outside world and symbolizes one wading across the stream and washing out all worries from social anxiety. It also creates white noise and runs all the way from entry level 3 to the restaurant level 2.

LANDSCAPE MASTER PLAN The total area is about 24,000 sq. ft with a parking lot on the right before enter the building. The road separates into two and meet again at the lower level below all levels, which creates another access to the project. The lawn at the East side of the project can be accessed with a slope from the resort entry level (level 3) to the recreation entry level (lower level 1.) The lawn provides outdoor activities like BBQ for users. Tea garden on the West can be accessed from the long stairway while going through the front wing A Public Plaza. The stairway goes through three levels. Entry for the back wing (B) connects the two wings, which is the space as a mediator of the two structures. It is also between the lawn and the tea-garden. The master plan for the project is developed by analyzing activated and deactivated programs.

The workshop provides hands-on lessons of making traditional art crafts, which will also be merchandised in the gift shop. The local artists can rent the studio as a working place and hold classes for both visitors and residents.
