執行年度： 107年 （2018年）
The project was to record the process of improving the deteriorated environment of the Siwen Village III Resettled Tenement.
The difficulty of residents-led urban renewal project
Located at the Datong District, Taipei, the ‘’Lanzhou-Siwen Village III’’ was one of the buildings that were constructed in 1969 as an interim houses for local residents.
Although at the time, the apartment had the most modern design, it did not meet the requirements of the present day. Renewal of the tenements become a crucial issue for local residents.
There were lots of difficulties and obstacles during the renewal. For example, the height restriction due to its location, the issue of ownership (including land owners and the building owners), and the fact that disadvantaged groups were the majority of the residents in the building. The combination of these issues made it more difficult to drive the renewal action and have the cooperation of all involved parties.
Documenting the stories of the residents
In 2016, Siwen Village III Resettled Tenement was the first government-led urban renewal project. Our team documented and followed-up throughout the process of this project by visiting and interviewing residents. We presented the complete context of Siwen Village III Resettled Tenement renewal process while guiding the public to discuss the issue of urban redevelopment in relation to social networks.
A Total of 7 video documentaries were produce during this project, illustrating the resident’s stories, the care for the disadvantaged groups, city government’s actions as well as the whole renewal process, in order to portray this local story while conserving community memories.
