Para-site, is a parallel site to the given location, it has a sense of a virtual community in real space.The Chinese title (fei-chang-le-yuan)has a double meaning: the super paradise and a theme park. The parasite is nourished by the local community, but is creating its own infrastructure: bar, hotel, cinema, kitchen or restaurant, farm, temple and theater. All of these elements, created by artists, urban planner, designer and ecological specialists are for temporary use. The new community will support the site to attract visitors, and to put it back on the map of places to visit. ‘The last green field of Taipei’ will become a camping site, holiday resort and a place to linger. Artists are asked to contribute to the new infrastructure, providing new temporary facilities or program. The local community should be integrated and involved to the new parallel site.
This project is organized by HongJohn Lin, Ella Raidel and Chun-Chi Wang.
