Façade Renovation of the No.1 Building of CAG

The key of the renovation is forming a 170m-long colonnade to integrate the main building and its east and west wings. Clad with beige travertine panels, the colonnade regains dramatic effects of light and shadow and rhythm. The 1.8m-module derives from the window size of original structure, while the new-built structure and the original walls enclose a long gallery to show the projects designed by CAG.
