Between highway ramps, many spaces were reserved for traffic and visual buffer. In this so-called green space, high-density traffic cuts it off from the public, therefore, retain its peacefulness, became a rare place for animals and plants who lost their original habitats due to urban expansion. The ecological state is so flourishing even than an official park.

 

National Freeway One's Taichung Interchange are such a great sample, placed in the deep core of the city, joined Taiwan Boulevard, the main route in the city, Taichung-Changhua Expressway and THSR parallel on each side. Landscape restrictions policy saved farmland in Westside. Fa-Tzu River Wetland provides the food resource for birds, and lush acacia inside the interchange become best nesting place.

 

This project represents the particular of this place in several arrangements. First to observe the ecological with 24hours time-lapse video, record the dynamic between animal\plant and traffic inside. Collected bird skulls from the interchange. Then, announcing this place to be a National Park, with logo, sightseeing guide, postcard collage from other actual national park’s materials, made up an official declaration. Later, invited local people continuously trip to this place, complete the recreational usage a National Park should provide. Setting a private wonderland between two national units.

 

Interchange’s traffic unexpectedly sets the boundary between human and nature, this kind of method of preserving nature with human defined limitation also sees at a national park or preserve area. <National Freeway 1 National Park> tried to show how nature and city relied on each other, and the possible gap that without planed but already exist in the opposition between development and the environment.

高速公路匝道間保留許多綠地作為行車與視覺緩衝。這姑且可稱為綠地之處,因為被快速的車流隔絕,得以留下一片清淨。成為都市中原始棲地被剝奪的動植物難得的生長區域,甚至具有比刻意規劃下的公園更豐富的生態樣貌。  

 

國道一號台中交流道既為一個顯著例子,地理位置深處城市核心,銜接了國道一號跟作為本市交通主幹道的台灣大道,兩側分別有中彰快速道路與高鐵路線平行通過。西側沿線因城市景觀規劃限制開發密度,得以保留大片田地,附近的筏子溪溼地則提供了鳥群食物來源,交流道內長滿茂密的相思樹則成為鳥類的最佳棲地。  

 

此計畫以多種層次去呈現此地的特殊性。先以生態觀察的手法使用縮時攝影記錄二十四小時內交流道內動植物和車流之間的動態,展示撿拾的鳥骨。繼而宣稱此處為國家公園,配合拼貼了來自真正國家公園素材的標誌、觀光地圖、明信片,捏造此地的官方性。往後邀請台中當地的居民持續回到此地郊遊,完整國家公園的觀光休憩功能。也在國家公路與國家公園的雙重國家單位之間交集出一個私人樂園。  

 

交流道的車流無心的劃定了某種人與自然的分界,而這種藉由某種人為限制達成自然保育的邏輯卻與諸類國家公園、自然保護區等不謀而合。<國道一號國家公園>試圖展現自然與城市如何彼此相依,以及發展與環境保育對立之間的另一種不被規劃卻已存在的可能間隙。
