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.

Looking carefully into the surrounding contexts and datum levels, the design reuse the structure of an existing building, extended it through slanted slabs into the new additions, connecting the building to the sloped ground and reduces the level differences created by the retaining wall.

Article source: Jvantspijker Urbanism Architecture

The Kaohsiung Waterfront is being made accessible to the city and its inhabitants due to the departure of navy and industrial functions. The project proposes a strategy for waterfront redevelopment by integrating the natural beauty of the adjacent forested mountain, a low density residential/leisure oriented program and heavy central business district program in balance.

Friday, January 11th, 2013

Article source: ACDF Architecture

Critics and practitioners of architecture often convey a contradictory message in a quest to comprehend the essence of iconic architecture. The notions of many recent international projects strive to be iconic, but few actually become truly successful from the point of view of the ultimate critics, the people who use them.

Housing in Taipei, Taiwan by Chin Architects

Tuesday, December 25th, 2012

Article source: Chin Architects

At Kuo Yang Tien Mu, which is located at an important urban junction, I attempt to transform the building envelope that protects the residents’ private lives into a meaningful public city façade. The architecture is to initiate an intriguing dialogue with the disordered built environment through a unique yet contemporary gesture. The design wishes to break away from the typical mundane and repetitive urban residential housing, and express a vibrant city life specific to Taipei City instead.
