Tales from Beneath the Arches explores the transformation of ‘non-places’ created by the mass building of elevated highways and expressways in Taiwanese cities. This project examines how such spaces have been repurposed by people to suit their needs. It is in these spaces that we can see the interaction between people and the built environment in one of the densest urban landscapes in the world.
