In the early period Yancheng District was the most prosperous area in Kaohsiung, so many corner houses with traditional arc shapes are retained. However, with the change of the times, the corner old house gradually disappeared, so I want to use this topic to make more people pay attention to the withering problem of the corner old houses in Kaohsiung.
The content of this group's topic is divided into "Old House Creative Book" and "Corner Old House Illustration Book". It combines surreal style illustrations with characteristic corner buildings, and records and promotes local characteristic culture, and the content of each creative book contains the past, present and future of the old houses. The book cover adopts hand-drawn illustrations and three-dimensional paper structure, which is different from the books that introduce historical monuments in general. It presents the appearance of the arc corners of each building and the box body combines the plastic hard shell to store the current mold, which symbolizes the meaning of sealing and preservation.
There will be a detailed introduction about the building in the part showing the past in the creative book, including the past history and small stories, and also the illustration part, using surreal methods combined with tracing paper to make the past look more interesting, and the inside page also combined with interviews with local residents to turn the stories they told into written text, providing readers with a variety of ways to understand the history of the corner old houses. In the future, the results of the questionnaire survey will be used. Using the method of three-dimensional paper structure and lighting, it presents the imaginary situation of "for the future of the old house". In the last part of corner old house illustration book, we have made other corner old houses with unique characteristics in Yancheng District into valuable, collectible, cultural creative merchandise. The outer package is attached with the old houses' short description and GOOGLE map or code to let tourists buy the merchandise and at the same time to let them go and appreciate the old houses according to the drawing.
