Next Gene Architecture Museum

Situated in Au-Di, Taipei County, the Next Gene Architecture Museum emerges naturally from a steep sloping hill, its dynamic presence harmonizing with the surrounding landscape and embedding into its natural topography.

A structural system incorporating conic walls, gives the interior a distinctive character – the interstitial spaces created by each creating a fluid circulation system which extends seamlessly from inside to outside areas.

The museum serves both to contain architectural exhibits and to serve as an architectural landmark itself. Distinctive perforated patterns on its outer skin allow natural light to enter according to movement of the sun via non-uniform apertures, effectively shifting light density in accordance with the needs of different program elements – their net effect being an ever changing play of light on museum surfaces.

Visitors moving through the space sense the passage of time through these subtle light chances, which further enhance their experience of the museum’s interior and exterior.
