The Port of Kaohsiung in Taiwan was once well known for its shipbreaking industry and its economic prosperity, but with the rise of labor rights and environmental awareness, the history of this industry is gradually disappearing. This project assumes the establishment of an architectural institute in the area to consider how to bring in the past history of the industry and preserve this memory so that students and teachers here and tourists visiting the area can learn about it together.
