01 Revive the Forgotten Green of Tainan City: A sustainable city planning and design solution for the “shrinking Tainan”

01 01

Revive Revive the the Forgotten Forgotten Green Grenn of of Tainan Tainan City City [Inner-city of Tainan, Taiwan]

What is the Tainan inner city happening? The grown of Tainan City has begun at 17th century which is one of the earliest developed se�lement within Taiwan. The grown urban fabric has remained nowadays in the inner-city context of Tainan. However, the complicated proper�es and the organic developed form has become the limita�on of the inner-city development. Declining popula�on, employment, increasing incidents of idle and vacancy buildings and land uses, the decentralized and sprawling urban development have shown the shrinking fact of the inner city.

Popula�on declining… Idle & vacancy… Employment declining… Decentraliza�on & sprawl…


In this project, the design will recall the forgo�en historic of Tainan Park by becoming a place for exhibi�ng green resources in Tainan and as a place for advocate the vital func�on of green infrastructure in the city. Also, in a larger scale to correspond to above issues of shrinking, the site will combine the R&D energy in tropical botanic of NCKU and several crea�ve ins�tu�ons nearby to build as a place for innova�ve industry in the theme of botanical resources. Landscape in the site and this project is as a medium of reconnec�ng and integra�ng the social system, environment, infrastructure and industry. As a design with mul�ple func�ons and a great posi�on with coming underground railway project, the site will become a new start point for untangling the shrinking situa�on of Tainan inner-city.

One-person Household





Inclusive community aims to provide a new urban lifestyle for the increasing percentage of one-person households and aging society. It provides flexible living units for different types of households, local shops and large propor�on of landscapes. Landscapes in the community is cross-scale from ver�cal public green space in buildings (space beau�fica�on) to community farms (edible landscapes) and grove park (urban microclimate cooling, ecology experience). With various space and condi�on, residents are able to use their skills and interests in the community and therefore have more communica�on with others and the nature. By providing mul�ple func�ons of space and advoca�ng par�cipants for community’s ac�vi�es for all ages and all kind of households, we believed it is an “inclusive” community for be�er social rela�ons.

The huge percentage of landscape works in the development of community (large-scale level) reduce the revenue of household selling, and therefore make the cost recovery more difficult. (If we set the price of housing to be as same as the local market.)This finding is also prove a lack of the kind of community in the current housing market. There are some regulatory advice we can discuss about.

03 Hub of Circular Community: Yong-Kang station area place making and urban landscape design project

Hub Hub of of Circular Circular Community Community

[Yong-Kang Station area, Tainan City, Taiwan] The course includes two sec�ons of training. One was the training on applying technology into planning and design, such as UAV drone and 3D Lidar. The UAV Drone was employed to survey land-use situa�on of factories and railway that wasn’t easy to access. The other part of the course had focused on hubs of Tainan.

Site: Yong-Kang District, Tainan City, Taiwan Course: Workshop on Informa�on Technology for Urban Planning (Msc level) Project type : individual project Supervisor: Assoc. Prof. Han-Liang, Lin 2017.10 - 2018.01

Yong-Kang was seen as suburban area of Tainan before. Large percentage of industrial area was therefore planned in Yong-Kang. The Yong-Kang railway sta�on was mainly providing transport services for industrial goods, and has developed several branch lines that could access factories more efficient. However, as the highway system was constructed and the amount of freight transport had declined, rela�ons between factories and the sta�on has become weaker. Besides, the increasing urbaniza�on has made Yong-Kang gradually become a place for residence, as the convenient transporta�on condi�on. In sum, the transforma�on of the built area, social composi�on, and the func�on of the place was observed, thus the role that the Yong-Kang sta�on must be adjusted. The circula�on nature of life and the resources that people consumed everyday was implemented in the project as a design concept. Heavy industry here will be removed, and equipped green infrastructure and open space instead. The sta�on will combine mul�-func�ons as a hub for exchanging informa�on and commodi�es grown in the new green area. The project contains the design of brownfield redevelopment and the re-design of the sta�on.

To Southern Taiwan Science Park (Tainan Park), Asian Vegetable Research and Development Center

Location & potential Since Yong Kang sta�on area provide convenient traffic to several important employment-provided place, such as Southern Taiwan Science Park (North to Tainan park and south to Luchu park) and the Asian Vegetable Research and Development Center etc., commuters seen Yong Kang as a good choice of se�lement, and there are even more high-class residen�al development in recent years. The increasing residen�al demand invisibly brings more pressure to force factories to leave or dismantle. The con�nuous urban expansion has led Yong Kang a industrial producing place keep transforming to a more well-being commuter living place, and the railway sta�on has also been transforming from a freight traffic service provided sta�on to a sta�on mainly for commuter service.

Yong Kang railway sta�on nowadays is the second busiest sta�on in the main Tainan city area. The area around the sta�on had developed to an urbanized industrial area since Yong Kang was seen as suburb of the old Tainan City. Therefore, Yong Kang sta�on had even developed several exclusive industrial branch lines for factories next to the sta�on for more efficient freight transport service. The large and impressive industrial landscape become an characteris�c image of Yong Kang to the visitors. However, as the close down of Kaohsiung harbor line and the changing form of freight transport, the volume of freight transport through Yong Kang railway sta�on decline sharply, and even cause several branch lines unused nowadays.

To remove the heavy industrial func�on from the place, and at the same �me make the place become a more well-being urban living area for the future need, the project gives a new design idea of the urban green infrastructure system which combines with the concept of a community circular system. It means, the green system will not only consider about the ecological connec�vity and the well-being path’s connec�vity, but also consider about the circula�on of a living area at all scales, from the circula�on of people’s daily rou�ne and its interac�on with the environment to the regenera�on of the place.

The main design in the project contain the center of the Yong Kang sta�on area circular system and the hub of the system. (That is factories behind the sta�on and the sta�on building.) The Circular System Center plays the role of a living supplier for people live here, including water cleaning, plants and edible landscape growing, energy exchanging etc. The form of buildings and landscape will mainly come from the original produce lines, to achieve the regenera�on philosophy. The new Yong Kang sta�on as the hub itself, it will be an important key point to exhibit the concept and the informa�on of this place; and also a point to sell product from the Circular System Center to commuters or tourists.

Socio-economics ac�vi�es are driven forces of the spa�al layout and context. The innova�on of technology has made industrial transforma�on. The urban landscape of the spa�al implica�on has kept transforming and adap�ng to new forms to correspond to new types of industry and ac�vi�es. Meanwhile, the industry usually takes cri�cal role of the support of local economy. It means, the shi�ing or shrinkage might cause the loss of economic energy and external benefits of the local and the overall social costs on space management will increase. With this point of view, we can understand that urban industrial ac�vi�es are not only factories for making profits in the macroeconomic perspec�ve but also can be localized investors of making places. As urban designers, we aim to untangle industrial structures and find the possible trend, and design urban form for future industries and local social benefits.

05 Fractal : Urban Sprawl Patterns Study *The study result has published in Journal of City and Planning(TSSCI), Vol.44, No.2, pp.171-189. DOI: 10.6128/CP.44.2.171

Fractal : Urban Sprawl Patterns Study Measuring urban sprawl on the urban fringe of Taianan using fractal dimensions The aim of this study is to measure the urban sprawl on the urban fringe of Tainan using fractal dimensions. The fractal dimension has advantage over the conven�onal indexes such as area and density as it is able to describe the sca�ering pa�erns of urban sprawl areas. The research area is the buffer zone 1 km inside and 1 km outside of the boundary of the urban planning areas around Tainan city center. The data from Land Use Inves�ga�on of Taiwan and the land use zoning informa�on in the urban plans were employed for the analysis. The research area was divided into 16 spa�al analysis units using the con�guity-constrained clustering technique. The box coun�ng method was used to measure the fractal dimension of the built-up areas for each spa�al analysis unit outside the boundary of the urban planning areas. Bivariate correla�on analysis was used to describe the rela�onship between the of the fractal dimension measurements and the conven�onal urban development indexes such as the sizes of built-up areas, distances between traffic intersec�ons, residen�al uses, commercial uses and industrial uses. Results show that the fractal dimensions are able to describe the urban sprawl pa�erns efficiently. Also, the fractal dimensions are significant posi�ve correlated to commercial uses, residen�al areas and built-up areas within the urban planning boundary, but significant nega�ve correlated to agricultural uses. The outcomes of this study are of help to the land use planning prac��oners.
