This thesis attempts to focus on the architecture projects leaded by the Japanese official architect, Ite Kaoru, especially during 1920s-1930s under the Japanese rule, when a specific turn of the socio-cultural atmosphere and architectural space occurred in Taiwan. Three of Ite’s leading architectural practices are emphasized here for their representativeness of this era: Kenko Shrine, Taiwan Educational Institute and Taipei Civic Hall. These three buildings are observed and compared particularly with notice of their interactions with the society, in order to specify their connections and apparent differences. A comprehensive application of spatial analysis is adopted to understand and find out how the architect dealt with the cultural and environmental differences between Taiwan and Japan.
As an architect, Ite Kaoru was confined under the colonial official regulation, but he still concerned about the local factors. How did he react to such chasm? What are the critical elements of Ite Kaoru’s works which were overlooked before? Therefore, through this research, certain positive meanings of these public buildings in the development of Taiwanese colonial modern architecture can be reflected, with a deeper understanding about Ite Kaoru and his architectural practices at the same time.
