Description: The Taichung Coast has many traditional buildings and is a place where the migration of settlements and folk activities are thriving. The purpose of this event is to understand the importance of maintaining the environmental conditions of the port area, and to learn about the old buildings in the port area of Taichung City, such as the traditional residences in Wuqi Old Street. Participants will learn about traditional architecture and how to reuse it. This event also allows participants to experience the local customs, industry, and life of Taichung Harbor.
