Work has started on Ram Katzir’s immersive Terrazzo and corten steel artwork in Xinyi District, Taipei.

Like a topographic map, our hand has valleys, hills, islands, and plains. It is scientifically proven that our choices and actions shape the lines in our hands over time.

Visitors to the Guanci Social Housing complex step into a huge line drawing of a hand tracing the lifeline of the other hand. Viewed from the top, it seems the building has grown hands and is rewriting itself. This project encourages social and urban reform in Taipei’s financial and political center.

 

Official opening in spring 2024
