A123 Taiwan Faience Waiting Room

The Taiwan Faience Waiting Room will present the famous koji pottery of Taiwan as wall frescoes. Taiwanese koji pottery artist Chen Chung-cheng and his team of veteran artists were invited to create an innovative representation of cherry trees in spring on Alishan. Here you can behold branches formed from large cuts of pottery from which the unique beauty of Taiwan's indigenous cherry trees bloom in all of their delicate beauty. Experienced craftsmen cut and paste pieces of ceramics to create hundreds of cherry blossoms. Butterflies, birds and insects emerged from the low-temperature kiln to flit between the blossoms. The art of Taiwanese faience seems to come alive once again here to inspire future generations.

A4 Blue and White Butterflies Waiting Room

The Blue and White Butterflies Waiting Room is designed to complement the laser-cut floral wall of the Butterfly Garden above. Hand-painted artworks by Lily Yang, Taiwan's top porcelain artists, showcase the butterflies at play. Yang used her observations of butterfly wings to come up with the "Lily Yang" style of porcelain design. Peony elements so characteristic of Oriental artwork have also been incorporated so that swarms of blue and white butterflies can be seen fluttering between the peony bushes. The butterflies convey well-wishes for travelers and remind people the importance of nature conservation.

A5 Taiwanese Local Cuisine Waiting Room

The "Night Market Culture" unique to Taiwan was chosen as the theme of the Taiwanese Local Cuisine Waiting Room. "Tu Long" (Su Chia-hsien), the world-famous Taiwanese 3D spray-painting artist was invited to create a giant 3D painting titled "Taiwan Local Cuisine." The 3D wall painting breaks free of the height and width restrictions by adopting a perspective with unlimited depth. The use of multiple focii and perspectives within the composition means travelers standing in any part of the waiting room will see a different aspect of the night street market. The immersive experience lets them experience the passion of Taiwan's night market and their unique culinary charm!

A6 Taiwan Aboriginal Arts Waiting Room

Siki Sufin made the ocean consciousness from Amis tribal traditions the key theme in his beautification of the waiting room to present the diversity and originality of indigenous culture and art to people of difference backgrounds. The experience reflects the cultural and geospatial relationships of Taiwan's east coast as well. Siki Sufin returned to the tribe like the drift wood that return to the shore after a trial by water. Here, the dense forests as well as the primeval desolation of the sea created an energy for which there is no substitute. Different types of natural drift wood together with vines, bamboo and traditional weaving were used in this waiting room to highlight the scope of contemporary indigenous art in a manner that goes beyond the boundaries of traditional indigenous crafts.

A7 Taiwan Alpine Waiting Room

The hundred mountains of Taiwan serve as the theme for the waiting room. Renowned Taiwanese painter Lee Tsung-jen was invited to condense the majesty of Taiwan's Mt. Jade and hundred mountains within this lounge. To draw attention to the themes of nature and environmental protection, Spring Pool Glass, a leading local glass recycling company, translated Lee's painting of Taiwan's alps to the lounge wall in the form of recycled glass stones. The result communicates the concepts of caring for the environment and protecting the beauty of nature. Local Taiwanese elements such as nature, wind, people and culture are used to piece together a mosaic that captures and conveys the beauty of Formosa to the rest of the world.

A8 Taiwan Tea Waiting Room

Taiwan's tea ceremony and tea industry are are one of Taiwan's most important tourist attractions. The beautification of the waiting room partition wall was used as an opportunity to present the beauty of a thousand-year old tea tradition to travelers. The woven bamboo wall is composed of three main elements: tea farm, tea poetry and calligraphy. The terraced team farm was woven out of dyed bamboo by artist Hsu Ming-sheng. The presentation of characters and scenery through woven bamboo conveyed the elegance of the tea culture. The tea poetry and calligraphy drew embedded throughout drew upon the running cursive of calligrapher Ms. Chou Yue-yun and the Tea Poems of Yuan Cheng . Together, they embody the depth and sophistication of the tea industry culture in Taiwan, as well as the cultural nuances of local the tea industry and tourism.

A9 Taiwan Opera Waiting Room

Taiwanese opera defines the essence of Taiwanese folk culture and is the only one of surviving opera formats today to have originated from Taiwanese folk operas. It not has its roots in everyday life but is also a vibrant art form that reflects popular thought. It is hoped that the collaboration between two great masters of Taiwanese contemporary art and design - calligrapher Tung Yang-Tzu and world-class graphic designer Hsiao Qing-yang - can fuse traditional Taiwanese culture with contemporary design to present a Taiwanese opera that combines both the past and present. In this way, Taiwanese opera can be catapulted onto the international stage as a symbol of Taiwanese culture.

B123 MIT Bike Waiting Room

The "MIT Bike waiting room" promotes Taiwan as the "Bicycle Kingdom." The Crafts & Design Department of National Taiwan University of Arts, Pacific Cycles and the Eco-City Integrated Smart Living Technology Regional Center from National Chiao Tung University were invited to form a partnership for this waiting room beautification project.

The "Curved Wall of the Waiting Room" was designed by the NTUA Crafts & Design Department. Bicycle components such as chains, wheels and gear wheels sponsored by Pacific Cycles were arranged into an art installation on the curved wall to represent how MIT bicycles have been marketed worldwide thanks to their exceptional quality and reliability. Travelers from around the world can now all see the pride of the bicycle kingdom.

B4 Saxophone AR Waiting Room

Here's a surprising piece of trivia. On average, one in three of all saxophones in the world come from Taiwan. Taiwan is now the world's No.3 exporter of saxophones by quantity, behind only France and Japan. Teng Yu, an up-and-coming Taiwanese illustrator, was invited to create an illustration for the waiting room with "Sounds of Travel" as the theme. Teng drew a series of paintings depicting a fantasy journey carried on musical melodies in his own distinctive style. He hopes that that the artworks can be shared with people from around the world through the magic of music. Augmented reality (AR) technology was integrated for the first time to present the saxophone theme in a fun and exciting way for the visual and aural enjoyment of travelers..

B5 Formosa painting Waiting Room

Most people think of "painting" as a blue-collar profession that takes little skill. In fact, in addition to practical "house painting" there is also "decorative painting" which can create visual effects with tremendous potential and can even inject cultural features into the aesthetics. The use of color, texture, and pattern can all create wondrous spatial effects. This is therefore not just a highly technical craft. It also requires extensive knowledge of color palettes, pattern design and graphic composition.

We hope that the decorative painting in the waiting room will introduce the beauty and uniqueness of Taiwan's people and culture to travelers around the world. The aesthetics industry of Taiwan can then been promoted and shared with other countries.

B6 Taiwan Fruit Waiting Room

Taiwan is the fruit kingdom and has long won international claim for fruit quality. Taiwanese fruit motifs were therefore chosen as the theme for the beautification of waiting room B6. We partnered with the renowned Taiwanese artist Hong Yi to make Taiwanese fruits the visual focus of the main wall and Taiwan's most friendly ambassador in the airport.

B7 The Proud of Taiwan – the “The Glory of High-tech” Waiting Room

To introduce more people to the high-tech side of Taiwan, thousands of obsolete motherboards were recycled to spell "MADE IN TAIWAN." The installation showcases Taiwan as a "Global Pioneer." More than 10,000 sparkling LED lights represent how Taiwanese technology has shone on the international stage. We hope this embodiment of Taiwan Pride can keep you company while you wait for your flight and make you fall even more in love with Taiwan!

B8 Glamorous Textile Art Waiting Room

Taiwanese textile technology is presented as a fabric art installation in Waiting Room B8. Colors, soft and hard materials, and stretch fabrics were extensively used together to create an installation rich in visual changes, transparency and structure. The way the colors jump about amidst the patchwork of brightly colored fabrics will make travelers feel as if they were floating in the air. The diverse yet unique sense of fashion in the fabrics seem to correspond to the development of Taiwanese textile technology and demonstrate to the world the vibrant growth of the traditional textile industry in Taiwan.

Lynch Kuo, a past winner of the Taiwan Fashion Design Award hosted by the Taiwan Textile Federation, was invited to serve as the director of planning for this project. The bright colors and textures of textiles are quilted together to create a kaleidoscopic effect from the front and reverse sides of different fabrics overlapping and intersecting with each other.

B9 Glory of Sports Waiting Room

Never give up is how people in Taiwan face life's challenges.

The theme for Waiting Room B9 in Terminal 1 is "Famous Sports People Exceeding the Limits" by constantly challenging themselves in pursuit of excellence. The stories of world-class Taiwanese athletes in famous sporting events around the world were brought together to craft a themed waiting room where the world can explore sports in Taiwan. The past, present and future of Taiwanese sports are all condensed into these classic records set b Taiwanese sports, famous contemporary sports people, and sports-themed display cabinets.
