2019 Creative Expo Taiwan – Infrastructure On the Move
2019 臺灣文博會 — NEXT 鐵道博物館
Inspire future imagination by walking through the track of the past.
Tasked to develop the former Taipei Railway workshop as a key site of the 2019 Taiwan Culture Expo plan and create a creative culture corridor along the old railway, BIAS developed a temporary observation deck to let people take a glimpse over the modern heritage of the railway workshop.
Most of the time, unorganized modern heritages are not open to the public and become isolated areas in the city. BIAS opened a section of the fence surrounding the precinct of the historical railway workshop and made it into an observatory of the site and its conversion process. Not only but also, an exhibition and a spatial experience were installed, finally creating a meeting point between the heritage and the city's public space. Instead of a fence, a metallic lattice and a folded platform were put in place. They offer unobstructed visual continuities and viewpoints with different elevations while they define a series of spaces integrating information and audio-visual experiences.
Thanks to the space design and programming strategy, the people can finally take a view of the historical site even before the heritage is actually accessible. This way, the memory of the old city can be reconnected with the public again. Standing on the observation platform, people can look at the skyline formed by different periods and imagine the former Taipei Railway workshops' possibilities in the future.
