Kaohsiung Maritime Cultural & Popular Music Center International Competition Winner – Design Concepts

This project proposes a responsible urbanism based on the heterogeneity of the program, on the urban porosity and on the adaptability to the different situations and events. We didn’t want an intervention only useful for concerts and festivals, but a fabric that becomes part of the everyday life of the city offering daily spaces to the habitants of Kaohsiung. The project develops along a bay in an extension of more than 11 hectares, meeting different situations of contour, which generates three different zones in our project:

Zone 1: in this zone is articulated the Outdoor Performance Area (for 12 000 persons) the Large Performance Hall (5000) and the Pop Music Exhibit Area as a continuous gesture that is finished off by two towers, one 113 meters high and the other one 83 meters high.

Zone 2: in this area we add a Night Market to the original program of the organization, a distinctive element of the Taiwanese culture, where people can gather, enjoy the atmosphere, eat, buy or just observe. This way the activity in the bay is guaranteed every day of the year. The Marine Culture exhibit area crosses this zone with a 6 meters high walkway, and is conceived as a “promenade” between the different pavilions and with the sea always present in the horizon.

Zone 3: this zone of longitudinal character connect to two important poles of attraction, the new station of ferries in the southern part, and the new night market in the northern part. In this area, we create different streets: a gallery covered with cultural activity, from which you access to 8 Small Performance Halls (200-400 persons), a maritime walk at +8m high level with different gardens of water, and 10 meters wide path with cycle lane. The symbolic nature of this project is not the fact that the towers could look like waves, or that the intervention can remind a seascape, but that the project gets this character from the use that the people of Kaohsiung do of it, and for how the projects gradually is incorporated into the city as a place full of life and of possibilities of use and enjoyment.
