Station Architechtural Design and Concept
The initial idea was to gather diverse dimensions of urban lifestyle concepts into a flowing station design. The design successfully realizes cultural mobility through the concept of "intersection (Chiao) and convergence (Huei)". The different colors of intersecting land patches and stained wall glass symbolizes abundant and interesting multicultural adaption, which abstractly turns the station into the city's showcase. Passengers also become the sparkling, flowing elements of this showcase. Additionally, the roof of entrance/exit C is installed with solar panels to transfer sunlight into power supply for ground lighting.
