In modern way, Asian philosophy, especially Taiwan, translated into this museum building design. Cultural fusion architecture bring new atmosphere for building design. The Mountain of Longevity and the Sea of Happiness inextricably and symbiotically linked by an internal journey – an episodic scroll-traveling through Asian space and time. This is National Palace Museum Southern Branch, Chiayi County, Taiwan.
Through natural biomes, evoking diverse pan-Asian landscapes, the Museum comes into view: a base of ancient stream-washed Taroko marble, rising low and long out of watery mists…a slow ascending gallery spiral – an artifact of inscripted, weathered bronze embracing a mythic garden as the glass and cypress Jade Mountain dissolves into the clouds.
