原民精神-原力再生
The transforming Erkong
 
    Air force atmosphere guards the memories of country and Erkong.  
Erkong, located in Rende District, Tainan City, composed the three villages of Renai, Renhe and Chengkung. During the Japanese Occupation, served as rear supply base for air force and residence for dependents. After Taiwan Retroration, still reserved the sets and residents mainly relied on air force but mostly Sichuan and Hunan generations. Today, the generations still have military nature but the type of military is not as simple as the first generation and join in navy or army, however, the accent of Sichuan and Hunan is still an unique style of local residents.
 
 
    The reconstrction of military dependents’ village brings new style.  
As the times evoluates, the project of reconstrction has been promoted year by year. The new-style community also means the unique style of military dependents’ village has been gradually forgotten. Recently, with the nationwide promotion in reconstrction of military dependents village after a series of pre-operations such as coordination groups, the project of reconstriction in Erkong Community start with the commencement ceremony in November, 2007. Facing buildings that accompanied for many years is about to demolish, the locals is deeply unwilling to let go but also highly looking forward to the improvement of environment and living conditions. Moreover, it symbolizes that Erkong Community is about to put on a new look and living space.

 

 
 
    Comprehensive urban renewal: a critical period to connect history.  
In 2016, Erkong Community proceeded overall demoltion. Watching bamboo fences were changed into isolated barriers and bustling scenes became a piles of rubble, we unavoidably emerged much melancholy and thought of the plainness in brick buildings. However, the change must bring better living space, we expected that Erkong Community may not only remain memories but also bring a more ideal future after the readjustment.
