In cities around the world, there are many historic buildings that have fallen into disrepair. Some are remnants of an industry whose time has come to an end. Others are victims of circumstance, places whose occupants just moved on. Cities might choose to condemn these old buildings and turn the land over to other uses. But one complex of buildings in central Taipei, the Huashan 1914 Creative Park, shows that there is another way. This place demonstrates that not only can old buildings be brought back to life, they can also become a centers of art, culture, and tourism.
