Taichung City Cultural Center Design – 21 Jun 2013
This architecture competition proposal uses 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 the design not only serves to enhance the aesthetic value of the building, but it also reduces the impact on the natural environment by taking advantage of passive technologies such as solar shading and natural day lighting.
