Luminous Moon-Gate (Taichung City Cultural Center) in Taichung, Taiwan by Form4 Architecture

Tuesday, January 20th, 2015

Article source: Form4 Architecture

Luminous Moon-Gate was designed in 2013 for the Taichung City Cultural Center International Competition. The design intent behind the proposed project hints at multiple interpretative roles for Taichung: a portal into heightened consciousness, a lantern of knowledge, a catalyst for metropolitan living, a cultural lung for the body of the city, a gate toward a responsible future, a center regenerative of community life, a landmark for orientation.

CITY CULTURAL CENTER in Taichung, Taiwan by d INKOFF Architects & Engineers

Friday, October 17th, 2014

Article source: d INKOFF Architects & Engineers

The site of Taichung’s new Cultural Center still reflects its recent history as an airbase. Bulldozers move and gather broken slabs of runway concrete, the weeds growing among them testifying to the change which is occurring.  Moving into the realm of the aircraft that it once served, the site itself will become 3-dimensional, rising to serve the new age of Taichung.

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.

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.
