OUTSIDERS, THE: THE STORY OF TAIPEI STORY HOUSE
In Taipei, a ninety-two-year-old building caught the attention of Hong Kong-born Chen Kok-choo when she emigrated to taiwan thirty-one years ago. Not that it had an intriguing past or did it house any important figures in history, but out of her deep and fond childhood memories of Hong Kong, chen has been holding this one and only english style building in taiwan dearly in her heart for decades.four years ago, chen spent thirty million taiwan dollars out of her own pocket to adopt this historic site and turned it into the taipei story house. Chen has since embarked on an experimental journey of promoting the revival of historic monuments by using non-government resources. The story of the Taipei story house not only demonstrates to Hong Kong viewers the policy of historic site reuse in taiwan and its actual implementation, but perhaps it also brings us inspiration on how we can deal with our own historic monuments.
