Chiayi City Art Museum

Public Seating and Facility Design

Cross-Laminated Timber (CLT) is the main highlight of the renovation of Chiayi Art Museum, utilizing leftover materials from CLT production to create seating at the entrance hall. The design aims to echo the museum’s characteristics through simple modern geometric compositions and colors, presenting a sense of volume, practical sculptural aesthetics, and the potential for extension according to the terrain.

Furthermore, the placement of “COLUMN Circular Public Trash Bins” and “SCREEN Fire Extinguisher Racks” within the space aims to complement the aesthetic atmosphere with detailed texture of basic objects.
