Taiwanese Architecture : Buildings in Taiwan
Key Contemporary Buildings in Taiwan, Asia
We've selected what we feel are the key examples of Taiwanese Architecture. We aim to include buildings that are either of top quality or interesting, or ideally both.
We cover completed buildings, new building designs, architectural exhibitions and design competitions across Taiwan. The focus is on contemporary Taiwanese buildings but information on traditional buildings is also welcome.
We have 3 pages of Taiwanese Architecture selections with links to hundreds of individual project pages.

National Library of Public Information Taiwan - 5 Mar 2012
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.

CICADA - Urban Acupuncture - 20 Jan
The Cicada is an open form based organic space inside the mechanical reality of Taipei City. The simple bamboo structure reaches a 12 meter span with 8 meter height and is 34 meters long in total. The construction method is local knowledge from South China and Taiwan. By time the structure will be covered with vines, which seem to explode from the ground. The urbanized river basin of Taipei is extremely fertile.
