“Floating” was a temporal architecture exhibited in the Taipei Fine Art Museum plaza which lasted for three months. The plaza is situated on the edge of urban center, adjacent to riverbank, hence causing frequent wind across the plaza. Due to the unbearable gusts of wind and subtropical sunlight on this plaza, people visiting the museum usually hurry inside the museum building, leaving the plaza a space lacking vitality.
In response to the natural feature of the site, the concept of “Floating” is derived from the attributes of wind and light. By joining the kite canopy and the curved island platform from above and below, a pavilion that captures breeze and light is created, floating amidst the plaza. Through the interaction between kite canopy and natural forces, a new way of perceiving the space is provided. The plaza becomes a gathering catalyst, an intimate yet public field.
