Richard Meier & Partners has revealed their first ever building in Taiwan, a 163-meter apartment building close to the center of Taichung. Offering 110 apartments with views over Taichung City Hall, the Opera House, and the Convention Center, the tower is composed of two towers connected by a central circulation core. The north tower is the taller section, with a geometric appearance that responds to the more built-up area to the north of the building. The south tower, which faces an area of smaller-scale residential buildings, features an expressive facade of translucent glass. The highly visible building represents "an iconic image for Taiwan’s future," and "a synthesis of innovative and elegant architecture", according to the architects. "We are honored to be part of the dynamic architectural vibrancy of Taichung," said Richard Meier. "The new tower responds to the scale of city’s existing fabric while sustaining the modern architectural dialogue which we continue to refine and explore throughout our work."
