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

Visitors to Guanci Social Housing complex step into a huge line drawing of a hand tracing the life line of the other hand. The drawing connects the building with the new Guangci metro station. Viewed from the top, it seems as if the building has grown hands and is rewriting itself. This project encourages a social and urban reform in Taipei’s financial and political centre.

Commissioned by The Taipei City Government Department of Urban Development
