Lost Rivers is an exploration of Taipei, Taichung and Tainan’s forgotten rivers, streams and waterways. Once dominant forces in carving out their surroundings, these rivers have now become neglected backwaters in the race to urbanise. Neglected, decrepit, the city is built over them and around them. Through them we see how the race to urbanise can affect our world.
