About the Project

The commission was to create a monument – conceived by well-known architectural firm C Y Lee – out of glass based on the concept of the Chinese tangram, a geometrical puzzle comprising seven different shapes. The monument, the first of its kind, was a tribute to all who were involved in the Taipei 101 project. These included investors, consultants and workers.

Concept

The design of the monument as proposed by Synergraphic was inspired by that of Lego bricks. Explains Florence: “Bricks are the basic units of the foundation of a building. I was also partly influenced by the fact that my husband is a Lego enthusiast and his Lego works, with their colourful combination of bricks, gave me an idea of what could be possible.”
