Rowan Moore is an architecture critic of the Observer and was named Critic of the Year at the UK press awards 2014. He is the author of “Slow Burn City” and “Why We Build.”

針對入圍五大最佳建築的台南河樂廣場, Rowan Moore 介紹道,「由前購物中心改造成的親水花園,景緻會隨著四季更迭 – 下雨時水量增加,天氣熱時,水霧瀰漫。」

To introduce the new park in southern Taiwan, Rowan Moore wrote that “The ruins of a shopping mall made into a water garden that changes with the seasons — more water when it’s rainy, vapor mists when it’s hot.”

由荷蘭建築團隊MVRDV操刀,與台灣設計公司合作,配合台南市政府計畫「府城軸帶」,將老舊的中國城拆除,改造為「河樂廣場The Spring」。

Designed by MVRDV, a Dutch architecture company, and a Taiwanese design company under Tainan’s urban renewal plan, the park is located within the city center at the former location of the Tainan Chinatown.

面積約1.54公頃的河樂廣場西起環河街,東至康樂街,成為台南最大的親水公園。園內提供親子戲水空間之外,還有建於1981年的中國城遺跡。

“The Spring” river park covers 1.54 hectares. It is the biggest river park in Tainan city, offering a water playground for kids among some remains of the former Chinatown, which was built in 1981.
