Best Project of Public Building or Facility

About the project
Through the in-depth research on the scenery and viewing experience, the design follows the specific sceneries of mountains, sea, forests, and sky as well as the potential activities of climbing, standing, swinging, and sitting. The design attempts to combine them and focuses on the creation of spatial sequences and the atmosphere — from the specific capture of forests, mountains, and seascapes to the full opening of the sky, the narrative from a specific view to an infinite view is completed. In the process of ascending and viewing the sceneries, visitors can feel the theatricality from being attached to the building to being free from the constraints of the building.
