但在臺灣人口已經面臨高齡化與少子化的情況下，若持續生產更多與更大的空間商品，未來勢必發生的問題則是這些商品所形成的廢墟。面對這些真正多餘出來的「空」間( Vacant spaces )，此刻的價格體系似乎也將有所改變。因而如何重新思考居住環境的「價值」，將會成為當今最重要的議題。
本次展覽以Shifting Ground為概念，企圖反思從「價格」到「價值」的空間觀點之轉變。藉由華山大草原中，舊月台及其周遭所共存的歷史痕跡與都市紋理，重新置入當代以價格為前提的空間觀點，以「坪」作為對話的開端。在臺灣常見的幾種坪數變化尺度中，三位參展建築師：松岡恭子（東京）、葉長安（香港）、曾瑋（臺北），將從都市土地倫理、權力痕跡以及商品邏輯等角度出發，提供不同城市的空間想像。 ，提供不同城市的空間想像。
A spatial perspective from“Price”to“Value”
The development of a city is often experienced through repeated re-planning and construction, which causes its appearance to be a fusion of traces from different periods. Such textures of transformation and diversity do not simply suggest a change in how the city is governed, but also reflect on its renewed spatial perspective from particular periods or under different political powers. When speaking of the lifespan of building materials and urban development,the so-called “renewal” is an absolute necessity; however, urban renewal is also associated with the business phenomena of corporations hyping up the prices of land and houses. The thinking system of “price” therefore controls and limits how the public views urban planning, architectural designs and other topics of spatial discussions; it simplifies and corrodes our social network, historical factors, and among others, the “Value” of space that is excluded in the price system.
Taiwan is now dealing with situations of an aging society and decreasing birthrates. If more and bigger spatial commodities are produced, a certain future problem will be the ruins created by these commercial goods. When facing these extra “vacant spaces”, today’s price system seems to be on the verge of changing as well. As a result, how to reconsider the “value” of its dwelling environments is now becoming the most important subject for discussion.
“Shifting Ground”, as the concept of this exhibition, attempts to reconsider the transformations from “price” to “value” in spatial perspective. Using “ping”, a traditional unit of measuring area in Taiwan as a conversation starter, and through the old train platforms in Huashan Creative Park and the coexisting traces of histories and textures of the city nearby, the exhibition re-instills the premises of price in today’s spatial perspective. Contemplating several common changes in the measuring scales of “ping” in Taiwan, three invited architects – Kyoko Matsuoka of Tokyo, Alvin Yip of Hong Kong, and Wei Tseng of Taipei – provide different urban spatial imaginations from such angles of land ethics in urban areas, traces of power, and the logic of commodities.
