This is an exhibition and vision about in what form the future home of the people of Taiwan should take.
The key element of this exhibition is the invitation outstanding young and middle-aged architects to join forces with individuals in Taiwan's very active and competitive industries in cooperatively imagining the appearance of the future homes of the people of Taiwan. We especially look forward to designers making good use of the strengths of Taiwan's industries, returning to the subjective location of local culture and society, gaining a clear awareness of their own strengths and the challenges that they face, and daring to gradually achieving dialogue with the vast global system after setting forth from the tiny local reality.
By letting designers get in touch with local manufacturing and aesthetics, this exhibition seeks to foster a sense of a local place of existence and active dialogue with the global entirety, while seeking out the necessary conditions for the coexistence of differences. This is like Taiwan's natural, cultural, history environment, which have always had their diverse, multifaceted features, and this rich and complex background is exactly what can enable Taiwan's design industry develop its strengths and opportunities for growth.
The urban/architectural concepts explored by this exhibition both reflect the various residential problems emerging in the wake of the rapid increase in Taiwan's urban population during the postwar period, and also reveal the new nomadic mode of living that has sprung up following the rise of the current industrial/digital society. It challenges us to crack the problems that face us, and also provides various constructive reflections on issues of architectural and ecological sustainability that will affect the world's fate.
This exhibition is divided into two parts. The first part moves the "HOME 2025" which was first unveiled at Taipei's Jut Art Museum at the end of 2016, in its entirety to the Kaohsiung Museum of Fine Arts. The second part—"The Home Happily Sets Sail"—which has a geographical focus on southern Taiwan, invites outstanding local architects to cooperate with industry personnel in engaging in individual dialogues with artworks, and jointly creating all-new works for this exhibition.
The home is the sheltered port that every wandering soul hopes to return to, and is also the happy place where we can obtain peace in body and mind. Although this is only a single exhibition activity, it bears the profound expectations and goodwill of all participants toward the homes of the people of Taiwan.
