This exhibition, held at Ostrava’s House of Art (Dům umění) in 2017, was co-organized by the Taiwan Alliance for Architectural Modernity, Ostrava’s Cabinet of Architecture and the Gallery of Fine Arts in Ostrava. The catalogue presents the fresh, innovative approaches taken by the Taiwanese architect Huang Sheng-Yuan and his Fieldoffice Architects (FA) studio. FA is not based in Taiwan’s capital Taipei – the hub of the country’s architectural scene – but at a peripheral location, in Yilan – a city of 100,000 people which since the 1990s has been seeking a new architectural identity for itself. The name of the exhibition and the catalogue is entirely apt: architects from FA do not only set out to influence professional target groups (architects and urban planners); they also involve people from all strata of society in their work – primarily thanks to their determination to seek “true life” and their commitment to design “at the scene” rather than at a studio desk.
