The architectural form developed from the combination of the regional culture of "Supo Lounge Bridge" and the traditional customs of "Floating wine cup along the winding water". The architectural shape comes from the image of a poetry- "Supo Lounge Bridge across the banks, limpid river flows to the east". People could feel and experience how ancient poets entertain while strolling in the gallery, exploring layers of space. We believe what regional culture gives back to the architecture would engrave in this region.
The 50-meter semi-outdoor corridor at the entrance and the white louver facade at the main elevation on the west side of the road strengthen the integrity of the building and weaken the sense of solid. The soft sunlight through the facade and the sparkling light reflected from the water interweave into an elegant image. The light and shadow are also exhibits, but also the evidence of flowing spirit within the space. The total 150-meter long corridor from exterior to interior create a space which could hold a variety of small art exhibition activities as well.
