Taiwan Museum Competition
Competition entry for the Taiwan Museum in Taipei is a design that explores a new fabric of architecture. The museum building is conceived as an amalgamation of 15,000 ceramic spheres able to be glued to each other to create a composite structure that allows spaces inside the building to be created without the use of floor slabs and columns/beams. The ceramic spheres also allows the facade to be breathable, allowing air to penetrate into the building, as well as diffusing light through reflection on each spherical surface. The notion of a new kind of architecture created out of pixels of ceramic spheres subverts conventional understanding of a building, to create an amorphous architecture for new generation of art and cultural spaces.
