Casagrande Laboratory:“废墟学院”建立在台湾台东县一个废弃的日台糖厂(1913-1996),旨在进一步开展第三代城市的生物都市学家研究。废墟学院的核心位于工厂的蒸发罐区域,从那里开始,它将逐渐发展到占据整个糖厂。核心区为废墟学院车间和工作室提供了多功能的研究和教育空间,并以工厂内大量的社区园艺和野生自然为后盾。

Casagrande Laboratory:  The Ruin Academy is set up in an abandoned Japanese-Taiwanese sugar factory (1913-1996) in Taitung, Taiwan in order to take further the biourbanist research of the Third Generation City. The core of the Ruin Academy is located in the evaporator tanks area of the factory from where it will gradually grow to occupy the whole sugar factory. The core offers multifunctional research and educational spaces for Ruin Academy workshops and studios backed up by extensive community gardening and wild nature inside the factory.


▽项目概况 Project overview


▽蒸发罐区域 The evaporator tanks area



The roof above the gardens has been removed in selective points in order to let rain inside. Additionally the existing roofs and rain water channels are being used for harvesting rainwater into water tanks for irrigation. All the floors are covered by wood or earth – one can walk bare-foot inside the organic machine.

The Taitung Ruin Academy is focused in the research of the Local Knowledge of the indigenous Formosan tribes in the Taitung County area and transforming this organic knowledge into design methodologies of biourbanism – ecological restoration of existing cities. The indigenous communities are still living in a continuous close connection with nature and are resisting the industrial control of the modern man. This biological connection of man and nature will be re-introduced to the industrial city as a decisive step towards the Third Generation City, the organic ruin of the industrial city, an organic machine. Ruin is when man-made has become part of nature.




The heart of the ruin academy is a jungle growing from the machinery of the abandoned factory. All the academic functions, tatami room and multi-functional spaces, future galleries and auditoriums, and the public sauna are the fruits of this jungle.




The Ruin Academy research, workshop and studios are realized in co-operation with various Taiwanese and international universities. Ruin Academy is operating as a part of the International Society of Biourbanism.
