2016 Urban Floating Island
Many historical government organizations were settled since the Japanese-occupied period on the southern site of ancient Taipei City. These space organizations have distinct hierarchy and energy, but their independence has destructively cut the continuity of urban spaces. On the other hand, its closing language and gigantic scale has gradually been unable to afford massive contemporary pluralism, cultural communication, innovating development, and changes of social relations.
“2016 Urban Floating Island” attempts to place three drifting architecture that are able to move, grow, and gather into these urban gap. The state of Floating Island has grown from the original architecture elects from the surroundings. With its intervention, the environment will transform into villages, stages, schools, and theaters. These three Urban Floating Islands have attempted to go back to the starting point to stimulate the gradually disabling physical senses when living in the city. Recalling architecture elements “window”, “roof”, and “wall” by physical senses; combining the elements with neiborhood art activities. Therefore, Floating Islands have turned into “Family Story House”, “ Artist Post House”, and “Time Filming Studio” becoming the new “nodes” of the city where energy gathers.
The creative team tried to develope a different scale of architecture that drift and change between body, city, and landscape. These nodes are not trying to connect with the city's memories but to construct a bizarre and even morbid urban landscape. Meanwhile, its temporality and materiality are vital and full of tension. Discovering the deepest energy among contemporary society and questioning a new possibility of forming a new field of art.
