For the redevelopment of the tourism infrastructure on one of the most beautiful locations in Taiwan, this proposal call for a strategy of limited acceleration zones in contrast to overall conservation of the natural beauty and qualities. In the acceleration zones, the heavy parking infrastructure has been interpreted as a potential for generating spectacular and dramatic landscape features. Special built structures like shading disks, form social meeting points in the landscape design.
