Description Change this

The site of intervention is an old train station deactivated for more than a decade in the city of Taitung, Taiwan. The station played an important role in the growth of the region, leaving an empty space when it was abandoned. As part of the local government’s effort to reactivate this area of the city, the idea is to transform the station into a cultural space, flexible and for all.

In the studio they believe that this type of voids present the opportunity to generate new uses and, given the sense of appropriation of the citizens, we think that it made sense to design a free space without function available for different ways of being. A space for nothing is actually a place where everything can happen, that promotes reflection and a new beginning, a space of freedom, uncoded, individual and collective.
