ONE WOOD

The Alishan forest has nurtured the wood industry in Chiayi for centuries. We partition this exhibition by the quadrant of all things to present how wood emerged into human civilization, from forests to the wood industry and from industry to culture and art. It shows a sustainable spirit of dependence and symbiosis between people and wood, thereby deriving the unique ecology of the wood craftsmen in Taiwan. Overall, this exhibition presents the core value of being from “one wood” to “all things. ” ◎ There is the smell of natural camphor trees in the exhibition area. Patients with fava bean disease should consider entering the exhibition.

Through knowledge exchange of wooden architectures during the exhibition, the “Timberize Chiayi” explores the endless cycle from forests to wooden architecture with the city folks. We expect to develop Chiayi, a wood city, into the greenest new generation of livable cities in Taiwan and inoculate the Timberize Chiayi through presenting the urban landscape made of wood.

Eco Night Market

In this design expo, we incorporate the Wenhua Road Night Market as the first stop for the environmental-friendly design of night markets. Next, adopting the design style guided by friendliness, we cooperate with the Show Ba department store to turn daily objects into local street furniture or objects with night market characteristics. Visitors can watch the exhibition during the day and visit the night market at night to practically taste the new Chiayi with their five senses.

Dongzhi Location

The Winter Solstice (pronounced as "Dongzhi" in Mandarin), also known as the Winter Festival in Taiwan, is the shortest day of the year in areas north of the Northern Return Line and is traditionally no less important than the three festivals, namely the Chinese New Year, the Dragon Boat Festival, and the Mid-Autumn Festival. This is because it symbolizes fullness and reunion, and it is also a symbol of growing older after eating sticky rice dumplings. Through this formal yet fun process, people are given a good reason and motivation to go home and have a family reunion, and the cold of the winter solstice thus takes on a positive meaning.
