The so called “timber street” in Taipei has been bustling since the Japanese rule period, originally known as “Tsa-Liao-Ah” in Hokkien, meaning timber house, and in 1947 it was officially named as Ning Shia Road.
For the modern public, most people would know Ning Shia Road for its night market and street food, less known for its historic background. It used to be called “timber street” for being the wholesale and distribution center of the entire carpentry industry in the city, dating back to the Japanese colonial era, till today, about twenty shops are still operating in the area, including timber, interior decoration, paints and hardware stores.
A short walk to the southeast side of the timer street, is Shin Cheng Street, where several workshops specialising in industrial processing are located, and further down south is Tai Yuan Road, where an entire street of various packaging and handcraft material and hardware shops are located, these three areas form a narrow triangle, or what we’ve named “Taipei Creative Processing Zone”.
We’re hoping to bring timber street back to life through a series of design activities; with the help of government resources, readymade elements are put into use, a new street identity system has been implemented, and “timber business card project”, “timber map design”, and “wood village + merchandise project” were also proposed and executed.
