This paper discusses the conservation of traditional heritage and preservation of the environment during economic development.Innovation in civic design during this century has made the world seem incalculable. Development of the environmental movement gives little cause for criticism. On the other hand, it is more important to take care to preserve national cultural heritage. Regarding the cultural heritage in Taiwan, this paper explores the possibility of closer environment links. In the past, people have proposed all sorts of hypotheses to explain why existing patterns have become extinct, and why the new built environment is possible. This paper addresses these questions: What is the best way to protect our precious local resources in this developing period of globalization? How can we at the same time cultivate the cultural prosperity of our local environment. Altogether, the values of conservation and preservation on cultural heritage should be considered by various domain, such as local culture, local industry, local environment, local homogeneity. What’s the new design’s worth? And what is the old design’s worth? By careful manipulation, what values could people can put them back.

I am not only a doctoral student of graduate school of design of National Yunlin University of Science and Technology, but also a lecturer of the department of architecture and interior design of Chengshiu University. After working a few years, I feel that learning is endless. That is the reason why I became a student again. In other words, it is really a hard challenge for me to achieve my goal. And I also like photography, travelling, reading.
