New tower museum uses Green Cell as a symbol for Yingge and New Taipei City.The cells consist of diverse materials, aggrupated in different functions, in order to adapt to different programmatic needs.A new technology based on a double skin is proposed for the museum. It serves as structure but also plays a key role in environmental sustainability.It provides a chance to regenerate and redefine the urban scape.

  • Architect: Kengo Kuma & Associates
  • Name of Project: New Taipei City Museum of Arts \”Green Cell\”
  • Location: New Taipei City, Taiwan
  • Joint participants: Masato Araya – OAK Structural Design Office, Atsuro Oka – P.T. Morimura & Associates, LTD.

Extension to city
We believe that this museum will not end in the mere exhibition of art. The CELL serve as a strategy to add more significance to the urban tissue, emerging as a new symbol. A pavilion in the park, shops, urban furniture and other public programs can be embraced by the pattern.

The main hall connects not only the museums but manages all the fluxes of the territory: train station, cable car, riverbank path, city and museum merge in this void, energizing the urban space.

Steel mesh Green Cells besides structural elements, they also serve as a framework for the skin which accommodates greenery, soil, LED screens, ETFE and photovoltaic pannels.

In-between space
The use of a double layer skin creates an in-between space which increases the flexibility for exhibition, and addresses the specificities of the Taiwanese climate.
