Oscar-von-Miller Tower in Garching, Germany by Deubzer König + Rimmel Architects

Saturday, March 5th, 2011


Because of the new development of the campus center, it is necessary to move the old Meteomast to a different location.

Approximately 50m high and now located at the south entrance to the research campus, the newly designed Oskar von Miller Tower should act as a visible symbol for the Technical University Munich and the science and research facilities located in Garching.

Tower of Change in Taichichung, Taiwan by NL Architects

Saturday, March 5th, 2011

Tower of Change is a proposal for the Taiwan Tower in Taichung. It is an attempt to break out of the usual confinements of architecture. It is a building that perpetually changes in height. It contracts and expands. It develops from to a pagoda like figure in its most compact position to a slender elegant funnel when erect. Tower of Change is an animated building.

Tower of Power in Taichung, Taiwan by NL Architects

Saturday, March 5th, 2011

Tower of Power features 600 rotors that together produce 6 MW. Tower of Power is not just a symbol of good intentions; it actually produces green energy. Instead of being yet another ‘empty’ icon it actually is a usable object: next to its required functionality as sightseeing tower and telecommunication base it is an environmentally friendly Power Plant.
