Mythology meets the modern world: the axis mundi and Taipei 101

The axis mundi, the cosmic axis, has, for millenia, symbolised mankind’s goal of climbing one step closer to the heavens and the gods. At the same time, it is an expression of the connective power of the world and the cosmos. Since time immemorial, the peoples of the world have assumed that their own native lands was the centre of the world and that it rotated on its own axis. This cosmic axis was originally trees, hills or mountains which were worshipped, sanctified and scaled to be nearer the gods and the heavens. In the course of cultural history, structures wrought by human hands superseded these natural elevation: pyramids, towers and tamples climbed heavenward and embodied worldly power alongside the spirit of axis mundi. Fascination with this cosmic axis striving towards the heavens continues even today. No other contemporary object expresses the ancient myth of the axis mundi more boldly than Taipei 101, the new emblem of Taiwan (ROC). A breathtaking monolith that semms to touch the sky and thus carries the spirit of the axis mundi into the XXI  century: the connection of the earth and the universe.
