Taipei Train Depot
User Manual for Construction

NCTU Taiwan
The project “Taipei Train Depot” is a project to re-model a historical haritage, that is, Taipei Train Depot. The train depot was built during the time of Japanese colonization era, to build and repair trains. However, the depot is getting old and is no longer to provide sufficient services, so that train depot needs to be remodeled with a new identity. This project is not only seeking for a new design, but also a “user manual” for Taipei citizens to demonstrate a way to interact with the construction sites while the train depot was being remodeled.
