Greek architectural studio Kois associated architects developed a conceptual design for the Art Museum Tapei, destined to become a new landmark object and the central landmark of Taipei Taiwan. The new building with an adjoining area sets the style and direction of future development surrounding its context, shifting accents and creating a new typology of topography.
Large-scale facility would significantly transform the urban landscape with spacious, yet in no way engaged in plots of land. Initially, sponsors decided to create not one but two separate objects, developing dialectic relationship with each other.
Located above the ground, snow-white structure resembling a chip, which was formed by sharpening a pencil, provides space for the children’s museum. The roof of the building, causing a child familiar to association, became the dominant visual architectural composition.
Abstract fused with a green carpet of the core art museum has become an integral part of surrounding landscape. Structure, located under the elevated sections of the earth, emerges only transparent glass facade, located along the East-West axis, and providing space exhibits plenty of daylight.
Children’s Museum is the crowning of the artificially high relief. The new facility is connected to the city by a bridge, on which will be located tench railway. At the same axis will be functioning ski lift.
New facility will be not only a platform for exhibition spaces and contemporary art installations, but also a place for meetings and walks of residents and visitors of the developing city of Taiwan. This is an environment where visitors can feel the possibility of unconventional solutions, daring experiments and creative development, to exchange experiences and information.
