As part of an ongoing collaboration between the LFA, Ministry of Culture, Taiwan (R.O.C.) and Taipei Representative Office in the UK, the three videos below have been specially curated for LFA 2020 based on this year’s theme of Power. To see more of the collaboration, please use the links at the end of this page.
A place’s history is a form of power – a defining narrative that helps build the identities of the spaces around us. This film selection showcases the revival of several historic buildings and community spaces across Taiwan, by architects with different approaches to recovering and reimagining the essence of these places. With each architect and their vision, forgotten memories are summoned and complex layers of history are unfolded, as they give bricks and stones a new breath of life. Spaces that were once frozen in time are now empowered, and once again, they are dynamic, becoming apart of the surrounding community and its people
