Abstract

The historical area of an urban city has a long developing history and contains extensive and valuable cultural assets and associations. In response to the urban function and industrial structure change, the majority of the old and historic community development is stalled with decreasing population and increasing number of vacant and abandoned houses and lands, which seriously affecting the living environment of the remaining resident and destroys the spatial elements that are used to shape the historical streets. In recent years, the public sector and society organizations have put funds into the relevant environmental regeneration operation with more improvement mechanisms, and focus on how to promote participation and cooperation from private and local resources. However, the rational of public sectors and experts are often contained with short-term plans and emphasis on promoting regional tourism or cultural creativity, while ignoring the importance of participating opportunity of local residents and existing community resources. Most renovation of old buildings in the community are still based on the owners self business and considerations or operation strategies, and the benefit to the surrounding public environment is limited. This research used a local house in the old community as working studios in order to observe and analyze the actual spatial resources of old communities identified by local workshop can be reactivated by regional development, and through continuous interaction with community organizations to attract stores and community residents to start caring about their surroundings and related public affairs to progressively develop a "learning exchange between different professional groups in the community on public environment-related issues. Through such research, it helped to activate participation of local people, and to collect and compile comments on regeneration development of historical areas from the local community.
