Five Dime Driftwood House is one of a chain of Taiwanese restaurants designed by Sigang artist, Hsieh Li-Shiang, who owns four other such establishments with business partner, Chen Wei-yi. This property has been the most ambitious, costing US$6 million to construct. It may be Hsieh's last restaurant project.
Hsieh grew up on a farm where her parents grew sweet potatoes and peanuts. Living close to nature was a key influence on her artistic principles. Her work is reminiscent of Dali and Gaudi. (Rick Green photo | View slideshow)
