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

Visitors to Guanci Social Housing complex step into a huge line drawing of a hand tracing the lifeline of the other hand. The drawing connects the building with the new Guangci metro station. 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.

Commissioned by The Taipei City Government Department of Urban Development
