Kaohsiung / Port Station Urban Design Competition

Winning Proposal by de Architekten Cie

The competition was initiated by the city government of Kaohsiung to transform the derelict site of the old railyards and port station from a barrier between two important areas of the city (the Hamasen and Yancheng districts), into a connective piece of the urban fabric. The stated ambitions by the client for the 15.42 hectare site are to highlight the cultural heritage of the site’s former function while introducing new programmes and building volume to accommodate city expansion. These twin objectives are to be achieved in a phaseable and highly sustainable manner. Since a large portion of the site and existing railway buildings are designated as historical monuments, the central challenge of the brief was to strike a balance between the desire for cultural preservation/revitalization, introducing new development onto the site, and establishing enough connections across site to transform the area from an urban barrier into an urban connector.


you can find all the pictures and the explanation of the project in the official

Does anybody know if this project is still alive? How it is related to the Port terminal and cruise service centre and Maritime Culture & Pop Music Center?

I also want to know if its still alive.. the sight is not close to the port terminal, so i don't think it has anything to do with it.

Those hills make me think of hairy green zits or cysts on the surface of someone's skin just waiting to be popped.

kalifese, as much as I've seen you getting all the bad reps from everyone else I actually agree with many of your design choices and examples; yes you do have good taste IMHO. :-)
Most of the time i agree with Kalifese.
