魔毯廣場由四塊大型的幾何夜光地毯圖騰組成,每塊都依據不同的公共環境特性形塑。它們是城中城,是都會的構成基本元素,藝家以最原始的符號繪圖將空間公共性化為可視的元素,標示人類活動間的關係。

「大門」標記進入廣場的南端入口,圖案採用古城遺跡入口常見的三分比例,在密集的線條中隱藏著三個方向性的箭號指標,在潛意識中導引人流,創造出微妙隱晦的方向性。

「迷宮」將地磚舖面尺寸放大,創造令人困惑的視覺錯視。在改變的尺度與舖面與非舖面的交錯間,促使行人在困惑中重新思考自身在公共空間中的移動軌跡與行為模式。

「競技場」框示了一個親蜜的集會場域,正對論壇會場。在有限的空間中,它將大會堂的三面階梯空間轉譯至二次元的平面,誘導地毯上的人們視覺集中交流而不加以限制。

「交叉口」是在大道交會處的指向性廣場。它是整件作品的支點,在白晝之夜中被大眾不斷通過的都會路口。在這裡舖面與非舖面的關係更加被放大,將傳統地磚舖面與幾何式的圖像作進一步的聯結。

The intervention is outlined as a collection of four geometrical fluorescent carpets, each of them arising from different public conditions. They are meant as urban components, shaping a city-in-the-city, to highlight possible human relationships through the simple act of drawing – making publicness something spatially graspable.

The Gate marks the main access to the boulevard from the South: the usual tripartition of the monumental openings in the ancient urban walls dictates the proportions of the flooring. Three arrows, almost hidden in the drawn weft, intuitively address the circulation flows, creating a subtle directionality.

The Maze is understood as an over-scaled tile to be inhabited and contemplated, where to stop and be perceptually confused. The changing width of the fractures, together with the interplay between patterned and naked surfaces, encourages the users to question their movements and behaviors within public space.

The Arena frames an intimate congregational area, facing the Taipei National Forum. Despite the restrained dimensions, it bi-dimensionally translates the stepped configuration of an assembly hall. This arrangement fosters a certain visual engagement between the people populating the carpet, without preventing a specific general axiality.

The Crossing is an orientated square at the intersection of the boulevards. It represents the fulcrum of the intervention, an urban path to be constantly crossed during the Nuit Blanche. Here, the division in tiles becomes more evident – linking a graphic pattern to the geometrical hierarchies of traditional pavements.

ECÒL ARCHITETTI

ECOL IS AN ARCHITECTURAL PRACTICE BASED IN PRATO, ITALY, Founded by Emanuele, Cosimo, Olivia and Lorenzo in the summer of 2016. ECOL is a platform for architecture and research, an itinerant office based in Prato, Florence and London. In a world where image and content are increasingly disconnected, we believe in the construction of a precise geometrical realm, where representation, aesthetics and architecture coincide. We define pure geometry as an accomplished architectural gesture, as an immediate spatial producer. Looking for a new iconography still rich of symbolism, we use geometry as a tool to address intuitively human re-actions and to trigger spontaneous social engagement. We create frameworks for an Active Geometry
