Keelung New Harbour Service Building – Phase 2 in Keelung, Taiwan by ACDF Architecture

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.

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

Article source: Gianluca Milesi Architecture

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.

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

Wednesday, March 7th, 2012

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.
