This exhibition space is located at the heart of a traditional taoist monastery. The structure are complied by facets of irregular planes. The structure appears to be cutting into the existing building.
The structure forms a tunnel-like experience for the visitors, bringing them into a journey. The displayed images are set at various heights, the visitors are interacting with the space with their movements too they will be standing on their tiptoe, squat down or tilt their heads to have a clearer view of the images.
The exhibition space is not an enclosed space by an semi open one, and the visitor inside the exhibition space may also be able to smell the incense, hear the chanting of the monks, singing of the birds. There are no formal “entrance” or a door; the absence of an entrance avoids unnecessary formality and it is inviting.
The main exhibition structure ends with an extended footpath leading the visitors to go back to the monastery.
