The “Regeneration of Old Buildings for New Uses Plan” started in 2015 with aims of “renovating empty houses, regenerating neighborhoods and encouraging social innovation in decaying area of Taipei. The experimental cases, a shared kitchen and a local gallery in Guoshun village and Jingxing village, have successfully become the community core where the locals come together to work and to share their daily life.
