In Taiwan, the model house is a unique temporary structure. It has a virtual spatial shape and is built as a beautiful structure by an experimental way through its colonial and multicultural history. Although it is only a flash in a pan, it reflects alternative thinking of space under the multi-society.
In the preliminary study The Beautiful and Virtual Architecture in the post-modernization-style study of Taipei Model House in 2007-2009, Being based on Roland Barthes and Jean Baudrillard’s theory, the researcher pointed out that the model house is a super commodification of symbolism, Through the purchase of goods, people can achieve and promote their social status. The model house will be changed as the housing market booms. In the recession, it will return to the selection determined by economy and function. It emphasizes on simplicity, singularity and no decoration, In the economic recovery, it presents post-modern architectural style and focuses on differences, narration and diversity, It can be described as a test ground for architectural style.
Post-modern architectural aesthetics extols machinery and science, pursues the sense of high-technology and application of science and technology, It also reflects social changes, requires refinement of symbolic meaning, semantics, language structure of works, gives new social definition, and advocates forms of communication. This study explores design aesthetics of the Taipei post-modern model house, studies the trend of design and opens the principle of the sense of aesthetic through the analysis of three dimensions of aesthetics (nature, meaning and form).
