In my final thesis project, I developed a temporal system of essential Sewage infrastructure as a opportunity to trigger a urban renewal processes and reverse the economic dead end of the old “Factory-villas” community which is contextualized through the recent global manufacture industry migration. With the emergence of “digital industrial revolution”, Taiwan was forced to enter an era of deindustrialization when the economical inflexibility of “Factory villas” hardly adapts the new “creative industry”. New “Factory Villa” reuses original concrete buildings as a micro manufacturing spaces produce small and customized prototypes, recycling the old steel factory into a studio, exhibition, residential complex, which preserve living/work tradition.
