The Dome Of Light

Posted on


This is the ceiling of the Kaohsiung MRT Formosa Blvd Station; better know as the “Dome of Light”. Pretty amazing for a metro station located in Sinsing District of Kaohsiung, Taiwan. This is the largest glass work in the world. It was designed by Italian artist Narcissus Quagliata, and its 30 meters in diameter and covers 2,180 sq meters, and has 4.500 glass panels, wow! When I first saw this amazing ceiling, I thought this was making a true statement of civic pride, and this place is very clean, like all the MRT stations in Taiwan. We were taking the bullet train or high speed rail as they are called to Tainan, quick trip at 200 mph.
