Entry Description

Xiluo Old Barn belongs to 60's heritage of Taiwan. It is the historic testimony of Taiwan's agricultural blossom then. Along with the change in times, barns and traditional agriculture have all declined.

This case is developed by the concept of local agriculture of Oryza Sativa, which is deeply related to the barns. This case uses the barn to be a seed to spread out the space of stem and rice. By the projection of dike, this case prevents the sandstorm from the northeast monsoon with the way of the extended landscape of rice's root, combining historic building with culture.
