There is a 99-year-old abandoned Sanheyuan on the site and it will be demolished for a new residential project. We were asked to design a temporary reception center before the construction of the new residential project. We decided to keep the Sanheyuan as part of the spatial design experiment for the reception center and also can be seen as a farewell exhibition for the old house. p.s. Sanheyuan - a historical type of Taiwanese residence that has structure on three sides of courtyard form an inverted U-shape.
