Aside from tangible and portable discarded stuff, there are places too which could be turned into a treasure given the right attention and investment. Such was the task given to the Stan Allen Architect who were commissioned to turn an old airplane hangar into a public venue.
The public venue will be known as the Taichung Infobox, a future structure that carried a budget of $1 million. It will be a new bamboo-clad version of the old airport hangar which will become a future venue for public assembly and education.
The new structure hits all the right notes of sustainable design, creating an inspiring a vision of what’s to come over the next twenty years when the main development comes to fruition.
