The deteriorating air quality within crowded living environments and the changing face of the built landscape has led designer Chiu Chih to develop ‘voyage on the planet’. the project tackles big questions, focusing on the idea that the world is in a constant state of flux. the subtle mysteriousness of the planet’s unknown future often forces human beings to adapt – and potentially create new equipment just to survive. The design responds to a sense of curiosity towards this ever-changing environment – where old buildings are demolished and new modern ones continue to rise. society and culture modify from one moment to the next, which in some cases Chiu Chih believes renders people hopeless, while for others it brings about hope and new expectations. The nature of this vulnerability is most poignant in the depletion of natural energy resources. ‘Yoyage on the Planet’ brings attention to the sate of the earth, and like new energy that is sought after as a replacement, it raises the question of further exploration and continued survival on the planet.
