The winner in the competition for the best offer of multipurpose complex in Taichung (Taiwan) Taiwan Tower Conceptual Design Competition became a mega-project with futuristic architecture, advanced construction technology and innovative eco-systems.
On the site we wrote about the projects participants in the competition, a concept which formed the basis of the orientation of the main organizers of the problem posed: the complex should become a symbol for the city reference point, should impress non-traditional and ultra-modern design, include advanced eco-technologies, to combine past and present and future of Taiwan. In order to assess the scope and ambition of the competition, you better look at the proposal from Little and Steven Ma, which we described in previous publications.
The project is the winner of the architectural competition in Taiwan.
Winning project is the result of joint creative architectural studios Mihai CARCIUN, DSBA and upgrade. studio. The building imitates the tree “trunk”, which is equipped with a vertically sliding it eight “leaves”. Each of the eight platforms can put 50-80 people and provides reviews of the city with different heights.
Except the “floating” vertical volumes, the building provides underground and surface space placing museums, offices, conference rooms, restaurants and public areas.
The architects have tried to maximum arrange green spaces in skyscraper of next generation. The project used innovative heating and ventilation systems of different functional areas, to minimize the greenhouse effect.
Electricity is produced through a system of axial turbines along the central vertical core and photovoltaic panels installed throughout the height of the skyscraper. Lighting of underground and museum spaces under the sandwich plate is carried out through the dome of fiber optics. Here it is also provided the system of collecting rainwater to irrigate plants and sewage works, and in the underground level of installed geothermal power plants.
