Traditional architecture and physical morphology of Taiwan are sources of inspiration of this project, combined with avant-garde design and sustainable principles. The result can be seen as a mountain chain floating over the green, but also as a back espine of a dragon, and it turns into an amazingly simple structure composition based in squares, which simplifies the structural design and the space organization.
1 . TWO INSTITUTIONS – ONE BUILDING
We propose to merge both Public Library and Fine Arts Museum. The building consists of three parts: Two independently functioning buildings and a shared area containing the lobby, common functions, shops… The building is integrated in the park allowing public life to flow through the TCCC instead of surrounding it. A public street where the shared areas are, crosses the TCCC linking the Park and the Avenue that creates an experience of a space full of activity and people where both sides are visually conected in groundfloor.
2. GROUND EXTRUSION
We create a Garden Roof-Top from the ground extrusion. The program forms a building volume.
Lowering the side of the building towards the Park, allows an accesible Park promenade along the roof mountains. The site is an extension of the green area creating a unique landscape environment.
Raising the north corner of the building to integrate the building of the International Convention and Exhibition Center and the east side to integrate the buildings from the Park Avenue 2.
