​​A city at the foot of rolling mountains that represents all the unknown places between cities and nature, modernity and tradition as well as beginning and end, Chiayi is embodies 95% of unknown places in people’s life, which are blank spaces that people have never truly and consciously perceived as they quietly fade away in time. These largely unnoticed and rarely mentioned places perhaps feel unrelated to our everyday life, but geographically speaking, they constitute 95% of the land, or even more. As the background and divided by roads, they comprise mountains, woods, fields, coasts, towns and villages that most of us have passed by in travel.

Indeed, it is precisely this expansively mountainous and rural land that has supported and served as a foil to the modern living in Taiwan.

Chiayi sits on a wealth of multiple resources that has given birth to the modern living in Taiwan, from the forestry of Mount Alishan, to Chianan Plain, to the Chianan Irrigation Canal that nourishes the agriculture. Chiayi has nurtured the inhabitants of this land and laid the foundation for Taiwan’s industrial and commercial developments. Based on this foundation, the 2021 Taiwan Design Expo in Chiayi aims to demonstrates how these resources have ceaselessly provided today’s Chiayi an uplifting energy and how such characteristics of Chiayi will continue supporting sustainable living that ushers in our coexistence with nature.

The 5% of Chiayi’s design is enough to influence the view of living of the rest 95% of Taiwan.
