Bridge Over Troubled Water
Ecological Self-Recovery System bridge the Past and Future Landscape
Parti derives from understandings that are nonlandscapture and must be cultivated before landscape form can be born. We think about the relationship between the past and the future, then we find a bridge which can be a hint to experiential and aesthetic sensibility. So, we draw a soft line on "Shezidao" landscape and building volume, to create a unique parti solving the serious flooding problem of nature and economic issue of residents. We use “ denial and reward ”to enrich passage through the built environment. First, we tend to be concerned with landscape physical things in and of themselves. Then, we focus on the human interface with physical things. Next time, you will see a brand new landscape when crossing the “Shezi Bridge”from Taipei City.

Design a "system" not just landscape design, respond to the topic "elastic landscape" and design a set of "protective, predictive, mitigation, adaptability" to explore Shezidao for government measures the negative impact, as well as the natural flood itself.
The bridge implied the connection between Taipei City and the forgotten island that bridge the past and the future. Sponge city is infrastructure and beneficial cause it is also changing the living environment, helping with flood and creating a better living quality life here. The new island can be like sponges. They have good “elasticity” in adapting to environmental changes and responding to natural disasters. They absorb water, store, seep, and purify when it rains. They can “release” or use stored water when needed.
In response to Shezidao has been flooded over the years, we have marked “historical flood lines” in the middle and zero zone of site plan as a hint in response to the over 50 years ignorance from the government.
