The structures serve as pointers to the fault lines hidden under the earth and make the earthquake more real to visitors.

The 921 Earthquake Museum of Taiwan combines an Exhibitions Building with the geological changes and destroyed structures in one place to present a clear impression of the damage that was caused by the earthquake. The structures serve as pointers to the fault lines hidden under the earth and make the earthquake more real to visitors. Chelungpu Fault Gallery is located right next to the oval track that was sharply displaced during the earthquake, showing very distinctly how the fault line moved. The site takes what happened in different areas during the earthquake and reduces it to the most basic logic and then presents it to the visitor.
Visual images of structures throughout the area are used to display the upper layers of the ground and to determine how far away the safe zone would be from each one. If you follow the structures along the line of the fault and study how the land is formed, you find both isolated and linked areas that represent different kinds of spaces to the observer.
