TED3 Taipei

The Technology Entertainment & Design Center – aka TED Taipei – is a dense urban block of all kinds of activities related to contemporary technology and media.
The cube = TED3
The spiraling street of media programs is consolidated in to a 57x57x57 m3 cube of program permeated by a public trajectory of people life.

The cube design by Bjarke Ingels Group is finished in concrete lamellas serving as solar shading as well as public access. The lamellas recede inwards forming a generous public staircase allowing the public to walk into the façade and all the way to the roof.

This new Taiwanese building by Bjarke Ingels Group will consolidate exhibition spaces, showrooms, retail space, a market place and hotel, offices and conference rooms all related to media in a single superfunctional entity. At the heart of the institution, a big public auditorium will host product presentations, program launches, movie previews and gaming tournaments as well as the biannual TED Taipei as the reoccurring anchor event for the whole complex.

TED3 contains an almost urban mix of programs with no obvious hierarchy. We propose to organize the shops and showrooms, offices and hotel rooms, conference rooms and exhibition spaces, restaurants and galleries along an internal extension of the pedestrian street to the south.
