BACK TO THE FUTURE

In 1933, the Chiayi train station won a good reputation for being known as “The First Modern Train Station of the Island.” Back to the Future as the theme of this micro-renovation project will bring visitors of the Taiwan Design Expo'21 to see the beginning of transforming Chiayi Station. Through subtraction and service design, we aim to improve the train station service efficiency in the future and reproduce the original beauty of the city-designated historic landmark.

Beneath the surface

Let's explore those visible or not, the connections beneath the surface, the spirits, and the symbolic meaning. The hidden water surface line symbolizes the surface stream of humanity and memory, and other states beneath the surface. We analyze the public space of Chiayi city from design perspectives, approaching, speculating, and scrutinizing the imagination of the future city life.
