In 1975, Chiang Kai-shek, former president of Taiwan died. His residence that located in Shilin Park, was closed until the year 1996. Today the Shilin park is one of the most popular parks in Taipei due to its historical identity and nice views. It has been transformed from an imperial garden to a public park in a short time, just like all the city's system that changes at high speed. Rapid growth is the most remarkable feature of cities in east Asia. While the most serious environmental problems appear in a short time. People soon realized that highly-urbanized city does not equal good environment and livable city. For a long time, the western mode of urban development has been imitated by Asian city. They can also study the strategies of urban regeneration in Europe or American?

In east Asia the post industrial cities have main goal to become the megalopolis. Commerce has dominated urban development over the past 20 years. In Taipei, the urban planning that focused on commercial area, adding more difficulties to improve infrastructure and public space. They still have much to do to solve planning problems in all aspects, while the wishes of citizens to improve the company began to grow after a fast-growing economy.

No doubt that the public park is one of the elements of the livable city. Taipei is a green city because of its tropical climate, it has a substantial amount of parkland. However, the per capita amount is very low because it has a large population, hence a lot of the need for public green. The lack of green space is just one aspect of urban problems. The Shilin park was built as a horticultural experimental station. Today it is used as a public park, which became a famous tourist at- traction and there are variety of activities organized in this place. The park's infrastructure and servers are overloaded.

This situation leads to the question: what kind of park is just the public park? What role the park can play to improve the living environment in Taipei?

The responsibility to carry out a strategy goes beyond the environment, or of its construction, but must take into consideration in all aspects starting from the current situation of the city, the neighborhood and the site. In this way it pursues a quality not so much linked to thè realization of conscious landscape, but more generally aware that the application of an approach applicable in the neighborhood, and in Taipei.
