Abstract: The rapid urbanization in Asian cities is creating both the glamorous urban nodes as well as the decayed community. Aging population, low income level and out-flowing population are the most common syndromes for these communities. Destruction of the existing urban fabric and gentrification of the local population is likely the foreseeable destiny of these communities. An underlining problem for such case is the detachment of the place with the local population. Among which, the elderly and the youth are the most affected social groups. The two social groups consist of more than one third of the local population and spend most of their time on site. In a post industrialized city like Taipei, Dalongdong Area is one of the typical decayed communities with rich history and yet facing the destruction and gentrification. The proposed community care centre intends to provide services for the needs of the elderly and youth social groups and helping them re-establish their attachment to the place. On top of that, the project also aims at fostering the interaction between the two social groups and the belonged community in large. The selected site presents large number of opportunities together with a typical set of problems. It is close to historical building and sites but detached by the traffic and vehicles. Public amenities are within walking distance but none of such advantage is taken. Social nodes are around the edge of the site but hardly any social activities could relate to the site. The proposed intervention aims to demonstrate a prototype of solutions for the typically observed problems within the area.
