Public Art Milestone
With more than 0.5% of the total construction budget set aside for public art, Taipei 101 has created a record public art project fund in Taiwan. Artists from seven countries including the United States, Canada, Britain, Germany, France, Taiwan and Hong Kong have participated in the planning of nine sites plus the fountain designing team. It's the first public art project unveiled under the newly promulgated Codes of Public Art Implantation. During the design and construction, artists and architects built up a great relationship through extensive interactions.
Executing with the concept as funding a “public art museum” in a mere three years, Taipei 101 is looking forward to providing the public with a space of internalized aesthetics through this project.
