Taomi Eco Village

Paper Dome by Shigeru Ban at Taomi Eco Village.

During the Taiwan 921 earthquake, 70% of the small village was destroyed. The villagers turned the crisis into an opportunity to not only reconstruct, but also to re-brand the village. 10 years on, Taomi village prides itself as an eco-village, with Paper Dome as the centerpiece. The Paper Dome originated in Japan, and is the embodiment of the love and mutual assistance between Taiwan and Japan community reconstruction experience sharing in addition to being the heart of Taomi Village. — at 紙教堂 Paper Dome.
