Project Description

The vintage wall of the old dormitory adjoining Zili Street is enticing. The enframed scenery and the vintage wall intriguingly simulate the scenes of old Japanese-style dormitory, wall, and alley in the past. The curved wall and the old longan tree, at the park entry, regenerate the scenes of the old trees and the narrow alleys in the past. Behind the bamboo forest, there is the literary pathway paved by stones. At the end of the pathway, people can see the spiritual symbol of the park where has the 100-year-old big tree and the wide square. The Poetry Wall corresponding to Zili Street is adorned on an open square, where is the best place for literary communication in community. The exhibition of the Japanese-style courtyard, accompanied with many literary activities, reproduces the courtyard scene in Japanese occupation era.

In addition to combining the historical features, we retain the old mongo tree, under which is decorated with literary-style booth and seat that generate a soothing atmosphere. The open space from Literary Forest to Literary Square is constructed with the restroom building, the wall of which also functions as a projection screen for movies.
