“Window of Yilan”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 28, 2011

The biggest and most prominent exhibit on display in the Museum is none other than the Museum structure itself. The Museum design was sent out for open competition in early 2000, and the winning entry was awarded to Dayuan Architecture Design Consulting Firm and Architect Kris Yao was appointed as the chief architect.
The inspiration for the museum building design originated from the locale’s natural environment. Through artistic imagination and techniques, the building takes the shape of a cuesta, a gently tilted stone escarpment commonly seen along Taiwan’s northeast coast. The highest point in the building structure points towards Yilan’s famous landmark – the Turtle Island. The entirety of the magnificent construction indeed serves as a perfect symbol of the rich history, culture and distinctive natural landscape features of Lanyang.
