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.

National Library of Public Information in Taichung, Taiwan by J. J. Pan & Partners (designed with Rhino and IDEAS)

Article source: J. J. Pan & Partners, Architects & Planners

Situated in the middle of the island of Taiwan, the National Library of Public Information occupies a site that is both geographically and metaphorically the confluence of information exploration and urban evolution. The striking form of the building features a “horizontal flow” theme recalling the early irrigation canals in the city’s settlement since the 18th century, as well as symbolizing the fluid data interface in the internet age.
