Taipei Performing Arts Center / Kokkugia

We have featured several designs for the Taipei Performing Arts Center (such as the winning proposal by OMA previously featured on AD), and our latest project is from Kokkugia, a New York and London based architecture firm. Kokkugia’s form, which is based on the location’s unique geography, is a compelling composition that attempts to create “a dynamic venue and a public space of spectacle.” The slight slope of the site in emphasized in the form, as visitors enter from under the building. The interior aims to create the best possible acoustics. The roof is a network of semi-autonomous agents that reorganize to adjust so that the roof maintains some of its original geometry and other parts shift freely.
