Putting a Hole in One Acceptance Speech of 2021 Taiwan Architecture Jury Prize

It’s been a long time since our sailors arrived on a beautiful island and gave it the beautiful name of Ilha Formosa. When we landed on Formosa eleven years ago, we were very curious if our ancestors had reasons to bestow such a beautiful name on this island. With great affection and above all comfort, we received from our client a desire for the highest quality of work from us. We always like to visit new places and meet people. Making architecture is something more than making drawings. A lot of empathy is needed between architects and clients. In fact, the clients are the great architects defining the possibilities for us, giving us support, and supporting us in the constant and inevitable struggles with the countless actors that are part of the design process from its beginning to the conclusion of the project and construction. The courses at The Taifong Golf Course were long. I really think it has more than eighteen holes. But all obstacles were resolved.
