Formosa Boulevard station, located in Taiwan, boasts the largest public glasswork made of individual panels in the world. Consisting of over 4,500 glass panels stretching across 30 meters, The Dome of Light was designed by Italian artist Narcissus Quagliata. The work, which shows “the story of human life” through the ages, took over four years to complete and was shipped from Germany, where it was manufactured. The station that houses the work is named after the Kaohsiung Incident, a seminal event in Taiwanese history in which pro-democracy protesters, following the arrest of two Formosa magazine workers, gathered to commemorate Human Rights Day. The activists’ arrests—by Chinese authorities, who at the time controlled the island—are credited with galvanizing protests against China and eventually leading to the rise of Taiwanese democracy.
