The proposal for the New Taipei City Museum of Art by OTA+ challenges the traditional definition of a museum and the conventional relationship between building and site. By freeing the ground plane of enclosed semi-public space, the interface between the museum and the site offers a new experience of a museum; one that is open, friendly, and welcoming. More images and architects’ description after the break.
