In the past, the Chiayi Garage Park was integrated with related industrial cultures such as timber workshops, power rooms, and wood storage ponds. It was an important place for the forestry industry and train carriage maintenance. The landscape in the park is rich and green. However, due to the lack of well landscape design and space integration at the interface with the timber factory, there are many unfriendly urban landscapes on both sides of Wuming Road. The design area includes a part of the Chiayi Garage Park and the timber factory respectively. It is intended to stitch the two areas together through landscape design, and to re-present the past railway forestry industry culture through the landscape space.
We transformed Chiayi’s natural elements, the “impression of mountains and forests”, into the concept of the landscape architectural design. Through the reorganization of the fences at the interface between the garage park and the timber factory, the arrangement of moving flows, and the integration of activity landscape, the interface on both sides is reformed. In addition, the design of permeable pavement, ecological grass slope, and planting design increased the railway cultural image of machine. It also creates a new entrance to the Alishan Forest Cultural Corridor.
