Abstract (in English)

Over the past 30 years, the conservation of cultural heritage in Taiwan has been through several stages, from the preservation of buildings, to the adoptive reuse of cultural heritage. However, the problem of evoking local identity in a drastically changing cityscape is still a challenge for conservationists and urban planners. Thus, this paper illustrates how we examine and interoperate with the Lioujia Irrigation Cultural Landscape and the surrounding preserved cultural heritage, then design and experiment with creative and innovative applications to build links with local schools and communities in order to reconnect people’s identity to the cultural landscape. With our design of an educational information device through exhibitions and associated activities touring through local primary schools and cultural heritage sites, we evoke children’s sense of place with the Lioujia Irrigation Cultural Landscape and reconnect people’s identity to this area. The outcomes showed that this innovative application not only engaged people with their surroundings but also rebranded the cultural landscape of Lioujia. Moreover, our efforts enhanced the cultural economy and the local cultural heritage.
