Taichung City Cultural Center Competition Entry in Taiwan by Williamson Architects

Saturday, July 6th, 2013

Article source: Williamson Architects

“The primary space is, by default, the plaza space defined by the awe of the water walls.
There is however no sub-ordinate space. All have their peculiar qualities.
All are challenging the accepted norm, contradicting pre-conceived and naturally occurring ideas of structure.
This built form is only the start of the adventure.” Brad Williamson (Architect)

Taichung City Cultural Center Taiwan by RTA-Office

Saturday, June 29th, 2013

Article source: RTA-Office

Our proposal is strongly based on the idea of a container — a unique vessel that encompasses a multitude of architectural objects, various spaces, and the relationships between them. Inspiration for the design of our shape was derived from traditional Taiwanese basket weaving.

The final result is a unitary transparent skin that allows stolen glimpses of the complexity that lies inside.

Thus this object becomes a contemporary interpretation of an ancient traditional art and culture. Comprised of thin lines of recycled ceramic elements, the skin gently filters the light that reaches the interior and enhances the shapes of the volume. The skin of our design not only serves to enhance the aesthetic value of the building, but it also reduces our impact on the natural environment by taking advantage of passive technologies such as solar shading and natural day lighting.

The aim of this project was the conversion of the existing building into a cultural and social centre, which would provide it with institutional representation. The outset was a dark, half-buried building that lacked quality spaces, placed at the interior of a block in Girona. The vast remodelling program included a 180-seat auditorium, an exhibition room, a computer room and an administrative area, among other spaces.

The aim of the project was to restore the old house of the priest, then property of the Townhall, to turn it into the new Casa de la Cultura (House of Culture).

Cultural Center in Guadalajara Competition Entry in Mexico by K+P Architects

“All the ways in which human beings overcome their original barbarism, and through artifice, become fully human”. Definition of culture by Samuel Pufendorf. As the above definition of culture our intervention is focused in two different states of the building. The first, their “primitive” state, reflected by the agglomeration of all vital functions for the operation of a building (infrastructure core).
