New photographs have been released of OMA’s Taipei Performing Arts Center (TPAC), as construction continues in Taiwan.

However, a large issue that the country is currently facing involves the energy production and consumption, and the negative impact it has on the environment.

Mecanoo has released images of their proposed Taichung Green Corridor in Taiwan, set along a mile-long (1.7-kilometer) former railway line cutting through the city center.
