Posted Date:2018/09/07 1195

Introduction

Located in Wufeng District, Guangfu New Village is the first new village built after WWII. It is now a favored location for wedding photography and film making.
Guanghu New Village was dorm compound sponsored by the United States government to accommodate the dependents of civil servants of the Education Department, Provincial Government. It holds a special place in Taiwan’s architectural and urban history for its unique design of the latest concept of a garden city at the time which aimed to integrate work and residential areas and create a green living space of low resident density. The village features organized streets, refreshing environment and the very first underground sewage system that separates rainwater and wastewater.
After community revitalization, Guangfu New Village has turned into a cultural and creative village where artists and entrepreneurs came to establish their creative base within the mottled historic red brick walls.
Visitors can also visit 921 Earthquake Museum of Taiwan nearby Guangfu New Village. It is where you can witness the nature’s power of destruction.

    光復新村,佔地非常廣大,算是保存相當完好的眷村形式。可惜進駐的個體戶和所謂的駐村藝術家比較沒有特色,點跟點之間稍嫌分散,販售商品的重複性高,美中不足! 由於太地方太大,點太散,有的翻修粉刷的太新,反而失了味道而刻意的文青風看多了視覺疲勞!

    光復心村內的房子大多數都有經過整理或整修,所以很能拍出復古風的建築照片,而且邊走邊拍,邊感受小村鎮的一絲氣息,是挺不錯的
