The dichotomy between high and low culture is disappearing. But can we create an environment that is inspiring for everyone? Is it possible to be elitist and populist at the same time? How can we envision a truly Public building?

Taipei Performing Arts Center in Taiwan by B+U

Sunday, March 20th, 2011

Urban Concept – The proposal for the Performing Arts Center in Taipei creates a world-class institution which is characterized by both its response to its urban and cultural environment, and by its formal and structural elegance. The project embraces the concept of a Grand Plaza as being a center hub between the Shilin night market and the TRTS Jiantan station. This is achieved by lifting the multiform theater off the ground and creating a covered outdoor linkage space between Cheng De Road and Wen Lin Road. This linkage space is the center access to the grand foyer and all three theaters. On the south side the Grand Plaza transitions into a garden that gently slopes up towards Jiantan road to allow for shops and restaurants to be placed underneath and accessible from street level. Both the garden and the Grand Plaza provide a large outdoor space for the thousands of pedestrians that visit this area. It is lined with shops and restaurants at the ground level and covered by a large roof of the theater above.
