24 FRAMES OF LIGHTWELL uses a 50-year-old building in the Zhongshan Nanxi Commercial District of Taipei, Taiwan, to model potential solutions for renovating old walkup apartments to preserve the city’s urban fabric. Currently, most old apartment buildings across the city are being torn down and replaced with taller structures that not only block the light but destroy the sense of place. 24 FRAMES OF LIGHTWELL advocates giving old buildings a new life by bringing commerce, fashion, art, and design together. The solution created 24 frames that bring natural light into the interior of the building and produce playful interactions between visitors, their surroundings, and the artwork.
