dc.description.abstract Without well-defined public spaces, coherent city planning, the cities in the East appear more chaotic. However, in the middle of this dense fabric, people have transformed the void spaces, such as streets and sidewalks, into exciting and intriguing public spaces. Examining its two oldest markets, Night Market and Fish Market, this thesis is an attempt to develop a new model of street activity densification on a larger scale in Keelung's most prominent but discarded waterfront in northern Taiwan. Since the site situates at the mouth of both bus/train station and Taiwan's only highway, this area has the potential to be transformed into another significant public space for the city, residents, and visitors. Bringing people into direct contact with the water, various shops, and the transportation hub are the main goals. Lightweight structures, booths, stalls, walkways, and ramps will be set up along the edge and floating on the water to create an interactive LATTICE with interconnected layers that provide a more user-friendly environment.
