The Heito 1909 project transformed Taiwan's historical sugar factory into a public gathering place, reimagined the wasteland barrier that struck a decade ago, and integrated community resources around the city.

Significantly, the park provided people a place to engage in quality natural environments within a metropolitan city. This preservation and adaptive reuse of ruins into the landscape is the first and only in Taiwan. The unique design creatively incorporates the ruins and damaged structures into the urban facility for people to experience.

This project has been longlisted in the landscape project category of Dezeen Awards 2021.
