dc.description.abstractThe thesis shows a redesign of a 12-acre creative park on No.50 Moganshan Road by using feng shui theory to express respect for Chinese cultural values and to explore new concepts that adopt modern landscapes. Retrofitted from an abandoned factory in China into an art center, M50 Creative Park (referred hereafter as M50) is facing some problems such as infrequent customer flows and low occupancy that interfere with the potential for high-yielding commerce. This thesis explores a redesign in an attempt to stimulate economic development, to maintain the art space, and to provide recreational and educational space for the public. Research such as on-site investigation about the site’s industrial history and current condition is studied to form design principles, from which a redesign can be generated to retrofit M50 into a historical, commercial corridor with good feng shui for public recreation and education, while keeping intact the urban art space.
