Tiffany Wey: The social life of Taiwanese streetscapes

Written by  Monday, 20 May 2013 22:54
 
     Harvard graduate Tiffany Wey studied the sustainability and the reuse of streetscapes in Tainan. During her 2011-2012 Fulbright Fellowship, she observed how the people use the area called "qilou", a space in-between the street and first floor residents or stores. She found that the qilou is a semi-public space defined through cooperative mediation of the street users and building owner. In this video, she also shares challenges and interesting stories of her stay in Taiwan as an Asian American urban planning researcher.
