Mecanoo : The 1.7km long former railway line crossing downtown Taichung was an important catalyst for the development of the old city. The railway’s historical value plays an important role in the revitalisation of the urban realm on which it sits.

可持续性生活、历史和文化的统一  Sustainable life, sustainable history & culture

虽然该条铁路线曾经将人们联系在一起,但如今其废弃的状态更像是一道阻隔的屏障。由于它紧靠河流且位于堤坝之上,并不利于轨道两侧的流通。项目重新对其进行利用,以可持续的方式连接城市的不同部分,为生物多样性创造绿色走廊。同时建立自行车道和人行道,以更好地满足沿线社区的需求。在这个线性场地上,可持续发展理念在广泛的规划设计中得以体现,包括城市更新、公众参与、历史保护、蓝绿资源以及行人和自行车的流通路线。在Mecanoo设计事务所丰富的城市规划经验的指导下,设计塑造了一条以人为本的城市绿色走廊,与Green River水岸相得益彰。

Although in the past the rail line functioned as  way of connecting people, the disused railway acts more as a barrier due to its challenging location on the dyke, which impedes circulation from one side of the tracks to the other. The design reuses the rail line to connect the different parts of the city in a sustainable way by creating a green corridor for biodiversity and including bike/pedestrian lanes to better cater for the needs of the community. Within this linear site, the sustainable development covered a wide range of planning and design factors including urban regeneration, public participation, historic preservation, green and water resources, and circulation routes for pedestrians and bikes. Relying on Mecanoo’s extensive urban planning experience, the design shapes a people-oriented green corridor, complementing the Green River’s waterfront.

意义  Inspiration  


To maintain the area’s strong historical character and set a coherent, recognisable theme for the project, the new circulation system layout relies on the track pattern of the junction railway. Based on the visual language of the railway infrastructure, the routes branch out to integrate the existing and future planned functions.

市中心的线性公园  A linear park in the city centre 


We define the green corridor as a continuous public park in the centre of the city, which will support the conservation and development of the area’s flora and fauna, while improving the connections for pedestrians and bike users in Taichung centre. The project integrates existing and newly added functions to the area into a coherent linear park.

所有人的向往之地  A destination for all 


The green corridor will become a destination and invite users to explore and enjoy the green qualities of the park. Its urban location makes it an ideal place for leisure and recreational activities. The park is designed to intensify the use of the area for the local and wider Taichung community, while promoting a more coherent city infrastructure.
