Deconstruction: Architectural Drawings of the National Taiwan Museum by LI Chien-Lang
White Palace Performace Hall
National Taiwan Museum, the oldest in Taiwan, has restored the surrounding historic buildings and transformed them into a part of the Museum. Today, the Museum has five historic buildings, including the main building of the Museum (former Taiwan Viceroy’s Office Museum), the Land Bank Exhibition Hall (former Taipei branch office of Nippon Kangyo Bank), White Palace and Red House of Nanmen Park (former Nanmen Factory, Monopoly Bureau of Taiwan Viceroy’s Office) and Taiwan Railways Museum Park (former Railways
Administration Headquarters, Transportation Bureau of Taiwan Viceroy’s Office). Each of these historic buildings holds their own stories and waits
to be explored.
This exhibition aims to analyze architecture from the aspect of deconstruction, focusing on the perfect balance between art and technique in
architecture via precise Architectural Drawings by LI Chien-Lang, and demonstrating the beauty of buildings by hand drawings of various viewpoints
including Perspective Drawing, Isometric Drawing, Cutaway Perspective, Exploded View and Utopian Architecture, in order to expand the vision and
imagination of the visitors.
