基地位置：劍潭山, 台北市 Jiantan Mountain, Taipei City
Two-thirds of Taiwan's area are mountainous, and the basin topography of Taipei City makes Taipei's mountain and forest resources very rich. You can see the outline of the mountain in the background of streets and buildings. Due to their high accessibility, these hills located in urban areas have a very close relationship with the city. Taiwan has experienced the special background of the Qing dynasty, Japanese-occupied, under martial law and out of martial law period, which also affected the development of urban hills. These backgrounds make the space of urban hills show the characteristics of historical and geographical significance.
These rich natural, historical and social resources in the urban hill are actually very close to our daily life, but they have not been seen or used in a proper way. The relationship between the urban hills and the cities and citizens should be rethinked. And I think urban hills should be more open. This opening does not refer to the large-scale reclamation of mountains and forests, but to expose and highlight the resources of it in a light manner, let a wider range of age could know and get close to these hidden resources in the woods, and let mountains are no longer just the background of the city.
