Food Market and Cultural-led Urban Regeneration: An Experimental Project in Taipei City, Taiwan
P. N. Yin
The article argues how a food market building in the old area of a city might work as a catalyst for a cultural-led urban regeneration. A food market stands more than 80 years not only supply food for neighbourhood, but also conveys much of community public memories. By making market a school/ community museum and retell the stories to children, the richness of local community histories turns into a positive energy to lead the urban regeneration matching the local needs, instead of sacrifice to developer’s interest only.
