To highlight the Kaohsiung Mass Rapid Transit System —a major national transportation infrastructure project—Chunghwa Post is issuing a set of two stamps, featuring the Central Park Station and the World Games Station. Central Park Station: This underground station comprises two levels, and the station’s architecture blends into the landscape of adjacent Central Park. A gigantic canopy-like roof, which resembles a flying leaf, was constructed to cover the entrance. Conveying the design concept of “to soar,” it demonstrates a robust and constant vitality. World Games Station: Inspired by the special physical environment of Kaohsiung and meant to show the special characteristics of a harbor city, the central design concept of this elevated station focuses on sailing, and the station building resembles a ship, befitting a major center of international shipping.
