MVRDV, working alongside The Urbanist Collective and LLJ Architects, has been selected in a competition to transform downtown Tainan in Taiwan with their design for new green corridor and urban lagoon connecting the city to its waterfront. Transforming the area of Tainan known as the T-axis, the design will see the city's Haian Road turned into a public park and connected to the city's canal by demolishing the existing China-Town Mall, a commercial structure built alongside the canal in 1983 and described by MVRDV as a "rotten tooth of downtown Tainan."

BIG's "most mountainous project yet" has completed its first home outside of Hualien City on Taiwan's East Coast. The striated vacation housing project, built to resemble "Taiwan's spine of mountains to the west," is being developed by the Taiwan Land Development Corporation as a dense new neighborhood that "preserves and enhances the beauty of the surrounding nature" and offers "an active and social lifestyle outside the city."

The first model unit to complete, the 1000-square-meter home provides a first-hand look into life at the Hualien Residences with custom furniture designed by KiBiSi and an efficient layout shaped by the a distinct narrow floor plate covered in vegetation that plays into the development's overarching "folding hill structure."

The Earth God (Tu Di Gong / 土地公) Temple, the symbol of humans' respect for Nature, exists in harmony and as one with the land and environment. However, current urban development practices have caused the gradual shrinking of this civic and religious center, as the property has been frequently ceded to the city under expropriation regulations. In response to this issue, Tai Square Arts and Aesthetics Association has organized the "Earth God Temple Student Design Competition", inviting young students with creativity and ideas to evaluate and provide a solution that will improve the situation of the temple and its surrounding

Richard Meier & Partners has unveiled plans for a 127-meter-tall tower in Taipei. Already under construction, the CDC “55 Timeless” Xin-Yi residential skyscraper will be comprised of two volumes: a solid north tower and transparent south tower. 

"The solid north volume contains the core of the residential units that flows towards the transparent south volume, which is a natural light-filled space where living, social and the more public programs are located," says the practice. "A carefully crafted geometric organization allows viewing corridors towards the mountains in the far distance."
