“THE TEXTURE CREATED BY TIME”
The copper for the exterior is weather resistant and can be used for a long time. It’s also suitable for partial maintenance by constructing with a small panel like the dragon skin. The color of copper changes year by year and will turn green in 20 years. This is a time-based design that makes you look different each time you visit, like a creature.

SITE2:  “DRAGON HEAD PLATFORM”
The existing platform is located on the summit of 430m above see level. In addition, a dragon-like slope is set up to climb to the sky, and providing an unprecedented view. Due to its organic slope shape, it’s possible to enjoy the scenery from different heights as if you were riding a dragon and flying in the sky. The highest point is set on the south side, and you can feel the connection with the sea and also make a relationship with DAGUAN PAVILION PLATFORM.

A slope car is installed at the start point of Hundred Foot Ladder so that people in wheelchairs can also accelerate, and the newly designed dragon slope is planned with a slope of 1/12 or less.

The structure is made of steel in consideration of workability, and the exterior is made of copper in consideration of weather resistance. By making it a small panel, it can be used for organic shape such as dragon skin.
