This project reorganizing the history of the sugar factory develops the stories and functions of space conformable with the developments of the factory. People can be closer to nature on the lake observation deck extended from Fuxing Road Bridge to the central lake. Following the riverside pathway, we see the main building of the sugar factory where the wide square can accommodate a large crowd. The irregular riverside slopes and the elevated wood deck connected to the island on the central lake constitute the best platform for ecological education.
