From the architect. Enta Yang shared with us the photographs he took of the Hsiangshan Visitor Center by Japan architect Norihiko Dan in Taiwan, winner project from the Sun Moon Lake Tourist Route International competition, featuring a really nice concrete work and a green roof cover to keep under control internal temperatures.

This is like a hybrid between Le Corb's Ronchamp + Zaha Hadid's Vitra Fire Station!

And the result...remarkable peice of architecture.

Recomment my earlier comments. I don't find the similarity betwen Zaha Hadid and Norihiko Dan' project: Hsiangshan Visitor Center, I really don't find it, even that I try to find it.

this is beautiful.
an nice original work.
not like zaha at all. i know all you haters want to say its a fire station rip off but the compound curves and spatial relationships are much different and more successful.

you guys cant look past a dynamic form and material without automatically saying it looks like someones else work. i would say its not even influenced by hadid.

its a unique, not like everything else we see nowadays.. accept it..

Seems very nice. But the plans/seccions are missing to check the fonctionning of the building.

I think imperfect curvature are much more humanine and true to nature.

Unlike super computerfied curvature we have these day.

Well said nind. People live with comparation, why? I really don't know. Freud come and explaine to us why we need so much those comparation, and why just a line or a volume can be atribuited just to one presone (Starchitect in our case). Like I said it before. Some Diagrames of volumes shape are from far and long time present in our life. Exemple: Moebius band, beeing used by two starchitects: Peter Eisenman and Ben van Berkel, but different project tipe, different material use, but the same f*@%#&g Moebius band, so please don't make such remarcs like a is Zaha's shape, or Bjarke, Libeskind and the list will continue.

javedani · November 20, 2010 07:19 PM

it is obvious that "Some Diagrames of volumes shape are from far and long time present in our life".
but how do you want people not to give name to what they see,and aslo want them not to compare ???
when people want to percieve any kind of objects,the first thing that happen in their mind is the process of comparison with their "schema bank".
and also,when want to describe something,they use comparison.
in discription process,people compare the "unknown" or the "new" object with a fimilliar one in order to remark their understandings,notions and all they have percieved.

and I,m really anxious about the term that all people should try to commend any work that they see.
I do not agree with you.

why do u guys always relate & compare the fluid form to zaha's while lautner has done it few decades ago.with deep & dazzling details of course. even gaudi & mendelsohn have done before.

When playing with line in a vector graphics editor, is easy to get similar forms.

quak · November 20, 2010 01:48 AM

yes, its easy.
but its dificult to turn it into a real building...

javedani · November 19, 2010

although the form of the building is really good,I'm not sure about the spacial quality.
to be frank, I think the interior space is too cold and too solid.and also it is not as fluid as zaha hadids'.....

amonle · November 19, 2010

I would love to see the formwork

godryk · November 19, 2010

Nice, I love this kind of design when it's well executed and creates such stunning spaces.

tinjan · November 19, 2010

Looks like a Zaha design from when she was actually cool.
