In Taiwan, precious historical buildings are disappearing, frequently as a result of fire. These suspicious fires oftentimes occur just after the building has been listed and “protected” by law as a part of Taiwan’s national heritage. Yet the government's neglect in the law’s regulation and support, combined with the lack of public awareness, threatens the survival of our heritage.
Case Design has designed a set of candles in the shape of a Siheyuan, an iconic historical structure, as a reminder that we will not only lose the buildings but also our cultural heritage. History can’t be rebuilt; it can only be saved.
