Description of Our Community: Shidong Market was officially opened on October 4, 1992 and has a total of 255 stalls, two floors and more than 20 years’ history so far. It is provided with the environmental protection and energy saving measures like solar panels, LED lamps, etc. Under the leadership of Mrs. Kui-chao Hsu, the self-governing committee’s president, Shidong Market is changing with each passing day, having changed from the ordinary and slightly messy traditional market in the beginning into a clean and hygienic traditional market and the pioneer of traditional market development. Shidong Market also held the “Good Relationship” project in May 2016 to conduct a big reconstruction for the market to provide reconstruction design for some vendors, letting them to have a strong artistic and brisk touch. Its self-governing committee hopes to create a modernized new market to reverse the citizens’ stereotyped dirty, messy and unhygienic image on the traditional market. The changing of Shidong Market would become a benchmark to be followed by the future traditional market, which is also an important step made by the traditional market towards the “modernization”.

Project Description: The stereotyped images of many people on the traditional market are messy vendors, garbage littered everywhere and inconvenient undesirable odor. These have become the established impression of the traditional market in Taiwan hard to get rid of even in the high-tech metropolises. However, our Cyberfair project of this time, the Shidong Market located in the Tianmu business area, has converted 19 vendors into the stall fronts full of the sense of design after the perfect finishing touch of reconstruction by the design team of the “Good Relationship”, giving a new look to Shidong Market as well. The “Good Relationship” has connected the traditional market with the “beauty”, improved the environmental hygiene, increased the quality and added beauty to the market in a hope to create a world-class traditional market. In order to bring Shidong Market to a higher level, our team of Sanyu Elementary School hopes to combine Shidong Market with new technologies to improve its air quality and reduce the contaminants through the new technologies like Arduino and IoT so that Shidong Market could have further development and become not only a traditional market full of human touches, but also a modernized traditional market.
