On the floors, hanging gardens are home to lush vegetation and plants seem to have settled this great structure naturally.On the slender appearance, lightness recalls the delicate balance of bamboo. Magic emerges from the contrast between the huge size of the building and the apparent fragility of the structure.

The light penetrates deeply through these structural lines. It is filtered, moderated by the foliage of trees before reaching the limits of reading rooms, exhibition halls.

The building consists of three types of spaces:

The outside terrace gardens that can circulate in contact element and create a temperate climate near the facades. They are an extension of the different programs. It thus becomes possible to come and read under a tree or walking in a park of contemporary sculptures and enjoy a breathtaking view of the city.

The publicly accessible spaces protected. They are covered and protected from the outside. Their openings, the constitution of their facades are adapted to their function. The light is so controlled by filters in the exhibition venues or reading. Generous openings can enjoy exceptional views of the panoramas in their circulations.

The building is designed as a system and it has many empty spaces can accommodate temporary activities or be partially occupied by programmatic changes not originally planned. Great freedom of use due to its design, because we believe that green building is a sustainable building that easily adapts to new uses over time.

Circulations in the building are organized like a fun course. The views still allow you to enjoy different views varied on the city, the park and the huge interior spaces.The presence of gardens, calculated facades of their exposure orientation, prevailing winds can create a naturally temperate climate and as free as possible of mechanical cooling.

The TCC is a building of a new generation or built space merges with outdoor relaxation areas.A building in constant motion can be rearranged at will and respond to emerging needs.

It is open to the city and the park, passing tourists but also residents Taishung come to visit for pleasure as much as it provides for the programs it supports.
