Due to the timber collection and distribution requirements of Alishan Forest Farm and the important location of the transportation hub in the Western Corridor, Chiayi City has gained the reputation of “Wood Capital”. With the advancement of reinforced concrete technology, wood, which was once an important building material, gradually withdrew from Taiwan’s construction industry chain in the second half of the 20th century.

The new exterior wall adopts multi-layer solid wood structural laminated lumber (CLT) in the process to replace the original reinforced concrete exterior walls on the west and south sides of Building B, which not only reduces the building weight by 30%, but also greatly improves the thermal insulation performance. The facade adopts a glass curtain wall and uses the same open vocabulary to connect the facade images of the three buildings A, B, and C in series.

Facing the direction of the square, the designer used integrated wooden beams to build a three-story hall with a large area of ​​structural glass façade, turning the entrance of the art gallery to face a landscaped atrium-like an “urban living room”. This transformation makes the open space that originally lacked individuality-the remaining open space facing the juxtaposition of different buildings, transformed into a landscaped plaza with individuality and cohesion through the rearrangement of the building facade, and becomes a landscaped square that can retain the residents’ memory Greenspace.
