In the past, the ferry station was only used as a means of transportation between Cijin and Gushan residents. After sightseeing became popular, many domestic and foreign tourists came here. Therefore, we hope that the two ferry stations should not just be a bus station on the sea, but should also serve as a representative of urban aesthetics to tell the story of marine Kaohsiung and historical Kaohsiung.
Our bases are two ferry stations located in Gushan District and Cijin District, Kaohsiung City.
In front of the Gushan Ferry Station is the Gushan Fish Market, which just opened in mid-October, and next to it is a No. 1 Chuanqu Landscape Bridge connecting the opposite coast. The location of the Cijin Ferry Station is also the beginning of Cijin Street. We found that the two ferry stations have It is a very good location but it has not been utilized. There is no good place in terms of appearance or internal service facilities.
This article uses the historical evolution of Gushan and Qijin to illustrate the differences between the previous ferry station buildings and the present ones, and some advantages and disadvantages found through on-site observation and actual experience (for example: getting on and off the boat must be done with a motorcycle, which is dangerous and Harmful to the body, there are no service facilities for tourists, etc.) to bring this research topic
And explain our solutions and practical actions for these problems in the design ideas.
