New Taiwan Tower Preliminary Design Proposal in Taichung, Taiwan by TheeAe LTD

Tuesday, April 2nd, 2013

Article source: TheeAe LTD

The abstract idea to represent the spirit of Taiwan was settled into the representation that creates a new image to match and balance with the existing Taipei 101. The characteristics of Taipei 101 were about strong, handsome, majestic, enterprising, powerful etc. as if it is the male tower representing Taiwan. So for the utmost beauty of the nature, the creation of female tower is necessitated to become one unity with Taipei 101 to represent Taiwan’s Spirit.

Public space regeneration through the “Pedibus” micro-projects in the Oltrarno quarter, Florence

The Oltrarno is a historic district south of the River Arno in Florence with a number of intrinsic characteristics that makes it one of the most problematic areas of the city.

The morphological situation is complex and varied: the historic city center is protected by UNESCO as a World Heritage Site while the pedestrian areas must coexist with congested traffic roads. Moreover the dynamic participation of local citizens in spontaneous committees and the richness of social life (locals, immigrants, tourists) envision the possibility to test here a pioneering project for the regeneration and re-appropriation of public space.
