Dadong Art Center is located in Kaohsiung City in the economic center of southern Taiwan. Connecting the dense context of historic Feng-Shan District, a major park, and the Feng-Shan River, the Art Center creates a sequence of public spaces by means of membrane-covered interstitial open space between four major volumes- theater, exhibition hall, art library and the education center. The intensive use of public space by activities such as dance, Tai-Chi and various games characterizes outdoor use in Taiwanese cities. A membrane roof creates a shaded condition for a wide range of activities. The roof shape prevents against extreme climatic conditions such as Typhoon, periodically strong rain and high summer temperature. Wide holes in the roof guide the water to inner springs. Warm air rises to the top roof openings generating a fresh inner draft.
