Military Housing Commune emerged as one unique architecture type and living arrangement in contemporary Taiwan. It not only has reminded many people of their childhood memory but also has become one precious cultural legacy.
For the residents as well as for Taiwan, the preservation and re-vitalization of military housing commune stands out as one urgent task with tremendous historical and cultural significance.
In addition to the location and buildings characteristic of the housing communes, we should take into consideration the preservation of furniture, equipments, clothes, eating habits, stories and biographies, pictures, interpersonal relationship, social network, documents, archives, collective memory etc.
Now with the availability and convenience of cyberspace and digital platform, it is our hope that the on-line preservation of military housing commune can help to improve social dialogue across cultural boundaries and enrich the spirit and the content of culture and humanities in Taiwan.
