Tiffany Wey: The social life of Taiwanese streetscapes

     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.     哈佛大學畢業生魏克珊於2011-2012年獲得傅爾布萊特獎助到臺南研究建築的永續利用與再生。期間她觀察府城騎樓的功能與民眾的使用方式,發現在台灣騎樓空間的使用方式是住家或商家與公眾空間協調下的產物。她也分享了身為一位亞裔美籍都市規劃研究者在台灣所遇到的困難與趣事。
