Aiveoli / Reconstruction of tobacco leaf drying plant


Taichung Tobacco Redrying Plant is a cigarette manufacturing base in Taiwan. We want to retain the complete industrial site and add new elements to regeneration it again. The inspiration of the Alveoli comes mainly from the breathing lungs and the roots of the rain tree. The park is the center of the rain tree, which keeps the historical buildings and culture intact and shapes the city’s lungs. The users regain their vitality in the park just like red blood cells, allowing the park to be more closely with the surrounding community, and creating a relaxing base in a bustling city.
