This Taichung City Cultural Center proposal by KAMJZ Architects aims to present the possibility of using local features to protect  from the very location itself turning limiting factors into interesting project features. With an average annual precipitation of 2500 mm and the climate heavily influenced by the monsoon season Taiwan is a country which receives a lot of rainwater. Therefore, the architects are focusing on a local water management agenda, 'Water Damper Towers,' with their building as it’s showcase. More images and architects’ description after the break.

Focuses the attention on the African and International communities, the proposal by Group IAD for the Pan African Games Masterplan is represented by the lines connecting each African capital in Brazzaville. These generators form on the plot a beam of guidelines as a first filter that allows organizing the circulation areas of the program. Drawing its strength from the meanders of the Congo River, this project establishes a permanent dialogue with the river, its surroundings and Brazzaville.
