Why does this website deserve to win?: 

The Department of Architecture in National Cheng Kung University was established in 1944, one of the first five departments of the university. It is also the first architecture school at college level in Taiwan. Top quality teaching and research has always been the Department’s key concern. 

Since its establishment the Department has contributed significantly to the training of architectural profession, to the advancement of knowledge, and to the improvement of Taiwan’s building industry and urban environment.

With more digital materials produces, the original website needs moving to a flexible and well designed platform to maintain the contents. In this project, our goal is to bring a new experience of building a web content to the customer, and reduce the efforts of publishing several types of material.
