Outline

Lightwell intends to create a new style of buildings between natural and artificial landscapes. Lightwell is situated in a flourishing area on ZhongXiao East Road, which breaks the stereotype of low and subdued arcade space. In Lightwell, changes of climate can be observed; the air flows from the ground up to the sky like saluting to Heaven, a way of communication between people. It also connects the heaven, the world, the ground for the true nature relationship of indirectness, interval, and intermediary.

Evaluation

Nurtured by harmony between nature and human, this building is created to accommodate natural scenery and artificial view and pursue renovated harmony between human and nature as well as balance between sense and sensibility. The traditional Minoan arcade illumination is replaced by courtyard. At the front, natural building materials texture reflects and shines artistically against running shadows; rays of light shed geometrically on local scenery on proportion either vertically or horizontally.
