Kaohsiung Museum of History(Open new window)
In the 1980s, Taiwan began with the conservation of every significant data of architecture plan. In 2007, the National Taiwan Museum carried out the acquisition and research project for “The Collecting Projects of Taiwanese Classical Architectural Plan in Postwar”, which have had the successful achievements until now.
This is the first exhibition which themed on Chen Jen-ho in Taiwan. Based on the research of his lifetime and the drawings donated from his family, we are able to re-establish his completed biography and find out more information in the period of time. We chose 12 considerable projects which stand for different scales and types on religion, education, residential and so on.
As the first generation of Taiwanese architect during the early postwar period, his achievements had turned over a new leaf with diverse dialogues and possibilities in the history of contemporary Taiwanese architecture.
