Characteristics of Building:
The main building of the museum, the highest peak facing the east of Guishan Island, gradually descends along the southwest and sinks into the ground, the entire building forms a triangular pyramid. The outer wall of the building is directly embedded in the soil, simulating the image of standing upright of the boulder, making the building echo the Wushi Reef in the water area of the park.
The outer wall of the museum was transformed from notes of Vivaldi’s violin concerto ─ "Four Seasons.” The architect arranged the stone and cast aluminum plates on the outer wall according to the melody, showing the farmland landscape of Lanyang, like dynamic music chant.
As long as you enter the Lanyang Plain, you will feel the experience of blending mountains and sea. Therefore, the theme of the permanent exhibition, according to the logic of the building floor and attitude, is planned to be a four-story design which is “The Mountain” on the fourth floor, “The Plains” on the third floor, “The Ocean” on the second floor and a “Time Gallery” on the first floor. They show the natural assets and cultural trajectories of Yilan, taking Yilan's rain as the main axis, extending the vast imagination space of the people.
Rivers and water are a part of life in the Yilan Plains. The focal point of the plains exhibition is the rush of the rivers that drive the economy, society, and lifestyle of the plains as well as the wisdom of agricultural families who have learned to co-exist with the water.
Lanyang Creek converges with the rivers of the plains, and flows into the sea, before joining with the Kuroshio Current north of the Equator. The exhibit follows the ebb and flows of the current, immersing visitors in the migrations of eelgrass seedlings and the swaying of the coral amidst the vibrations of a submarine volcano.
