Located in the east of the city in the shadow of the 101 tower and Taipei's world trade centre is a Taiwan War Veterans housing complex built around 1949. This site has been renovated and converted into a museum and exhibition space. It sits on some of the most commercially sought after space in the city but because of its historical importance to the liberation of Taiwan it's a listed building.
The back to back terraced streets have been knocked through into entire buildings, creating three large exhibition halls inside, with the original appearance of the houses on the outside. The spaces that interested me most were the small facade rooms created by the larger space conversion. These have been separated from the gallery space by interior glass walls and are only accessible from the external outside doors.
Two facade rooms are identical in size and could potentially be used to house a connected telepresent installation. It's also interesting that the audience in the gallery can observe the participants in the space through the glass, but the people in the separate facade facing rooms can not see each other.
Booth rooms are only about 2 meters by 3.5 meters and 2 meters high. The original houses were longer, but no wider and they often halved the height of the rooms to create separate sleeping and living areas.
