’21st century Architecture.

13 Dec

Sou Fujimoto wins Taiwan Tower Competition.

The proposal ’21st century oasis’ by japanese practice  Sou Fujimoto Architects in collaboration with taiwanese firm Fei & Cheng associates has taken first place in the Taiwan Tower International Competion for Taichung City.
Derived from the trunk of the taiwanese banyan tree, the ornate structural system will frame a semi-outdoor interior space generating a dappled light quality as found beneath a leafy deciduous canopy. positioned within a green belt, the building will become an urban retreat with a green rooftop ‘island’ floating 300 meters above the city. representing the divine isle of formosa, the garden will reintroduce the beauty of nature into the urban fabric while becoming a symbolic landmark visible from many points throughout the city.
