The T-Factory is the combined ruins of a Fujien style old tea factory and rice factory + a modern factory out of use in Sanjhih, North-Taiwan.

The ruin compound was used as design-build educational base camp for Tamkang University Department of Architecture, C-Laboratory under command of Professor Marco Casagrande.

The theories Ultra-Ruin, Third Generation City and Weak Architecture are developed in the T-Factory.

The architecture is a simultaneous ruin and a construction site with the general aim of supporting life.
