The Earth God (Tu Di Gong / 土地公) Temple, the symbol of humans' respect for Nature, exists in harmony and as one with the land and environment. However, current urban development practices have caused the gradual shrinking of this civic and religious center, as the property has been frequently ceded to the city under expropriation regulations. In response to this issue, Tai Square Arts and Aesthetics Association has organized the "Earth God Temple Student Design Competition", inviting young students with creativity and ideas to evaluate and provide a solution that will improve the situation of the temple and its surrounding landscape in a new location, ultimately granting the Earth God and the residents of the neighborhood a better environment.
The Earth God Temple, Dahe Village, Xitun District, Taichung City, Taiwan.
