Project Brief

"Light up Kaohsiung with lanterns, light up the community with creativity."

Project Innovation/Need

The project presents four major themes in Sky Art: Light Up a Light, Welcome Spring and Blessing, The Ball, and Happy New Year Kaohsiung.

Design Challenge

The design team wanted to create a key point in the sky, so the 17m suspension technique was required. After an environmental survey and expert assessment, the site needed to have a 15cm thick wall, meet aperture considerations and have the occupants agree to the work.

Sustainability

After the festival, only the sky art was removed due to weather conditions, and the landscaping and wall paintings were well preserved. The design team started with the concept of permanently preserving the exhibits, hoping to leave the colorfulness to the local residents and to truly implement environmental friendliness.
