Kaohsiung American School Design Concept in Taiwan by MAYU architects+

Tuesday, September 8th, 2015

Article source: MAYU architects+

An international school strives to nurture its students to become world citizens through a community of teachers and classmates of various nationalities as well as diverse educational methods. The Kaohsiung American School (KAS), as such an entity, has thrived for more than twenty-five years by attracting talented teachers and students alike even though it has negotiated with limited physical presence because of relocations and use of older facilities. By leasing the former Victory Elementary Public School site from the Kaohsiung City government, KAS finally has a permanent home at the current site not far from the Lotus Pond, a famed tourist attraction. The new school built on this site is well thought out and curriculum based to better meet the needs of all students.

“One More” Kaohsiung Residential Tower in Taiwan by spatial practice

Tuesday, August 5th, 2014

Article source: spatial practice

The recent groundbreaking ceremony for Bellevueciti Construction marks the start of construction onspatial practice first residential tower “One More” in Kaohsiung City, at the exclusive front row of the Art Museum Park.

In our culture today, we are constantly over-exposed to information and data. It is important to create a living environment that provides a relief from these elements through a reconnection with nature. The simplicity of design for the tower is the result of maximizing the dramatic relationship to the natural environment and taking full advantage of its location directly in front of the park. The horizontal band defines the uninterrupted view of the park, mountain, and sea; while also performing as a sustainable shading element to reduce heat gain.

Dadong Art Center in Kaohsiung, Taiwan by de Architekten Cie.

Saturday, November 24th, 2012

Article source: de Architekten Cie.

The Dadong Arts Center is located in Kaohsiung, the economic center of southern Taiwan. Before the opening of Chinato foreign markets,Taiwan was the leading economy of the region. Towns developed into a generic industrial city fabric without adequate public spaces. Currently, the strong brand of ‘Made in Taiwan’ is in the process of being restored to its former glory. The cities urgently need pleasant urban space to help regenerating inner-city districts. Therefore, the Dadong Arts Center is conceived in the first place as a new public domain, setting new high standards for the level of urban comfort.

Port and Cruise Service Center International Competition in Kaohsiung, Taiwan by Gianluca Milesi Architecture

Saturday, June 16th, 2012

Architecture as an expression of changing times

Kaohsiung city is a port and, as many other ports is in a situation of changing. The reasons of this changing have been very well analysed by many.. factories that move their production somewhere else. the decreasing of the traffic on the sea.. and many others depending on the particular locations. New York and London already provided, at least partially, to reconvert the unused piers or the part of the city close to the sea or the river previously dedicated to the maritime traffic to other destinations and a different life. The case of Kaohsiung is somehow similar, but there is a difference in the conception of the changing and the strategy related. Many cities just dismissed their piers and their warfs because they were useless and decided to dedicate these part of the city to new and different destinations.

Kaohsiung Port and Cruise Service Center in Kaohsiung, Taiwan by REISER + UMEMOTO

Saturday, March 12th, 2011

For the Kaohsiung Port Terminal, we propose a dynamic 3-dimensional urbanism that takes advantage of the site’s unique lateral positioning with respect to the city grid.  Existing public pedestrian flows along the proposed elevated boardwalk can be amplified, rather than interrupted by creating a continuous elevated public esplanade along the waterfront. Cruise and ferry functions, meanwhile, are located just below the public level and are kept distinct to maintain secure areas for departing/arriving passengers.
