Dome of Light

Kaohsiung has the largest public artwork made from glass in the world. Designed by German artist Narcissus Quagliata over four years, it was shipped to Taiwan in pieces and assembled in Formosa Boulevard metro station.

The Dome of Light, as it’s called, is spectacular and reinforced Kaohsiung’s reputation for art in public spaces.

When the dome’s lights are switched off, there is a video display on the floor telling the story of human life in four parts. After that, you can make your own art by stepping on the touch sensitive floor, which lights up as you move across it.
